spoon (169 x 169)

Spoonface Steinberg

Lee Hall’s (writer of Billy Elliot) extraordinary, award-winning play about faith, love and the meaning of life was first broadcast on Radio 4 in 1997 to unprecedented acclaim. A monologue by an autistic girl facing a terminal illness, it is at turns funny, intensely moving and profound.

Director Adrian Rawlins says, “Having directed 18 year old Evie Guttridge in her first professional play recently at ERT (The Night Season), I was blown away by her commitment and professionalism. When we talked of doing a festival to engage and celebrate young local talent, Evie was an immediate choice to play Spoonface Steinberg, a one-woman play that is at once inspiring, poignant and hilarious. To hold an audience on your own for an hour is a huge challenge, but Spoonface is a beautiful play, and Evie is a cracking young actor who definitely relishes a challenge. I think it’s going to be a very inspiring evening.”

Perfidious Lion

Lucinda knows this party needs to be a success. As well as commemorating her wealthy husband’s untimely death, it’s a good way to encourage some desperately needed philanthropy. Having already sold the billiards table, she can’t bear to see the silver go. Worse still, the bridge club is threatening to cancel her membership. Reality is seeping in through the blinds faster than one can fix the moth holes. Can she prevent it from exposing the truth?

A new solo show from writer/performer Bettine Mackenzie, last seen at ERT in The Night Season.

Both plays are being performed as a double-header at ERT on 29th & 30th June and 1st July, 7:30 p.m.

Tickets £12
