Girlfriend Experience & Annie Get Your Gun at Y' Vic


Girlfriend Experience & Annie Get Your Gun at Y' Vic

Two productions confirmed in the Main House of The Young Vic Theatre...

The Girlfriend Experience, by Alecky Blythe, opens 29 July 2009, following previews from 24 July - running to 15 Aug 2009. Directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins, starring Debbie Chazen, Esther Coles, Lu Corfield, Beatie Edney, Alex Lowe. Tessa has set up a business; a brothel by the sea where mature women specialise in the Girlfriend Experience, a surprisingly caring and sympathetic service. As the women stoically strive to make a living in a competitive market, their personal lives start to crumble. Will they ever have loving relationships outside work and enjoy being girlfriends themselves? This play is created entirely from edited conversations recorded inside a real brothel.

 

Annie Get Your Gun, by Irving Berlin, book by Herbert and Dorothy Fields, opens 16 Oct 2009, following previews from 3 Oct - running to 2 Jan 2010. (NOTE: PUBLIC BOOKING OPENS 29 JUNE 2009) Directed by Richard Jones, starring Jane Horrocks (Annie Oakley), Julian Ovenden (Frank Butler), Buffy Davis, John Marquez, Liza Sadovy, Eric MacLennan.. Frank Butler is the sharpest sharpshooter in the West and heart-throb of Buffalo Bill's travelling Wild West show. He'll take on any challenge... and win! That is, until Frank meets his match in the rough and ready tomboy, Annie Oakley. Romantic sparks soon fly – but whilst he’s competitive and she’s stubborn the course of true love never will run smooth. After all - anything he can do, she can do better.
