A newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends: wife's best friend meet husband's co-worker. "Just be yourself," Suzanna advises Becky. "And as much as you can — don't show any weakness." When the evening takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in this wickedly funny play that asks what we owe our families, the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.
"Gina Gionfriddo's comedy of bad manners, a tangled tale of love, sex and ethics…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…deftly plotted, scabrous and sharp-witted…One of the great pleasures of BECKY SHAW is the way the moral ground keeps shifting underneath your feet." —NY Times.
The seasoned ensemble of teaching artists includes Erin Broussard, Steven Cooper, Brady McKellar, Amanda Newbery and Charlee Halphen Swain. Elsa Dimitriadis directs.
