A sharp and witty three-hander about what it takes to stay relevant in our modern theatre landscape.
At a prestigious London theatre, the stage is set for an ambitious reimagining of Tennessee Williams’ classic A Streetcar Named Desire – rising star director Pierce Mitchell has dug into the racial undertones of the original to craft an incisive new vision. However, the theatre’s board have instructed Candie Woodley, the Artistic Director who made it all possible, to force Pierce in a new direction that better suits the topics they think audiences care about. Caught in the middle, Candie and her number-two, Lea Celeste, must concoct a solution at the last minute.
Black Bat Productions returns following acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe runs of Brimmer-Beller’s Press (★★★★★ “Fringe theatre does not get much better than this” – The Violet Curtain), and incisive satire more relevant than ever.
