Set in the Bronx NY, this iconic play, written by Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley collides us with two of society’s beautiful, yet dysfunctional city misfits. After a chance encounter in a forgotten bar, their defences dissolve and a spontaneous night of heart thumping confession, love and chaos unfolds. With no easy way out, both are forced to dive deep in order to find a forgiveness that offers the rare chance of a more hopeful future. This is an explosive, deeply affecting play exploring the issues of personal alienation and the redemptive power of love.
In this interview with Andrew Whiteside, director Sara Wiseman discusses her love of the play.
