Becky Shaw

Directed by Georgia Martin

Friday, Saturday, Sunday 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 June & 3, 4, 5 July

“Becky Shaw” is an amusing and cleverly constructed comedy about ambition, the cost of being truthful, and the perils of a blind date. The fast and funny dialogue navigates between five distinctively perverse and disingenuously dysfunctional characters.

When this  Pulitzer prize-nominated play first premiered in 2008 one reviewer said of it:-
“Gina Gionfriddo’s comedy of bad manners, a tangled tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women in their 30s, is as engrossing as it is ferociously funny, like a big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last”


Featuring Kate Foster and Madeleine Lipson from last year’s hit “Five Women Wearing The Same Dress”; Brenda Shero who appeared in several Theatre North productions as well as DHTC’s “A Pint of Pinter”; Sam Hemphill (“Uncle Vanya”, “Caldera” and “Honk If You Are Jesus”) and newcomer Samuel Peacock, who has just completed a professional tour of Queensaland; this is a strong cast in a very strong play.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday 19, 20, 26, 27 June & 3, 4 July at 8pm

Sunday Matinees 21, 28 June and 5 July at the winter friendly time of 2pm
