A 2009 Pulitzer Prize finalist, Becky Shaw is a darkly hilarious tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women in their 30s.
In Gina Gionfriddo's BECKY SHAW, a newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends: wife's best friend, meet husband's sexy and strange new co-worker. When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in this wickedly funny play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.
Presented by Mitch and Murray Productions, a five time Jessie Award nominated theatre company. (David Mamet's "Race", Neil Labute's "Fat Pig")
Directed by David Mackay, featuring Meghan Gardiner, Moya O'Connell, Aaron Craven, Charlie Gallant and Marilyn Norry.
"It's been a long time since I've seen an evening of theatre that's so thoroughly well realized. Gina Gionfriddo's densely verbal script is wickedly smart, funny, and provocative. And, for this Vancouver production, director David Mackay has cast the show exquisitely: all the players in the five-member company are working at the top of their games." (The Georgia Straight)
