Honeymoon Suite by Richard Bean; directed by Jane Lobb
From the writer of ‘One Man Two Guvnors’ – the award winning ‘Honeymoon Suite’ was written for the Royal Court in 2002 and is laced throughout with Bean’s comic genius whilst exploring gritty and moving themes. A honeymoon suite in Bridlington. Eddie and Irene begin married life with great excitement, but the future may have other ideas….if Romeo and Juliet had lived would their marriage have survived and for how long? Combining outrageous comedy with laugh out loud lines and beguiling tenderness. ‘A superb play …….. haunted by lost passion’ (Charles Spencer The Telegraph)
Set entirely in a Bridlington hotel suite – the same one in which the couple spend the first night of their honeymoon and to which they return throughout their lives. The couple is seen at different stages in their relationship – in youthful hope, middle-aged disappointment and in maturity with equal regret and acceptance.
The play is an ensemble piece and three different actors play younger and older versions of each character!
