Background


With a female-led creative team and an ensemble cast featuring: Meaghan Martin (Camp Rock), Kate Sumpter (The Little Drummer Girl), and Stefan Menaul (Dirty Dancing, West End), we journey through the ludicrous and lonely world of New York theatre, culminating in Durang's iconic finale: The Actor's Nightmare.


Especially curated by 3 hearts canvas into a cohesive, stand-alone piece, the production includes the UK Premiere of some of Durang's finest works: Mrs Sorken; Desire, Desire, Desire; Business Lunch at the Russian Tea Room; Woman Stand-Up; Medea and The Actor's Nightmare.


Synopsis


Tony Award-winning playwright Christopher Durang explores the entertainment industry through biting satire and surreal comedy.


At once a celebration of show business and a touching reflection on what it means to be an artist, we are offered snapshots of the eccentric and absurd.

From Tennessee Williams to Euripides, tossing in a bit of Beckett, no renowned playwright is safe.


Classic plays are warped and distorted - the outcome is both shocking and hilarious.
