Wastwater by Simon Stephens at the Tabard
Two Shillings and Sixpence present the first London revival of Wastwater, by Simon Stephens, at the Tabard Theatre, a pub theatre in Chiswick, west London, from 4 May to 4 June 2016, with an official opening on 5 May. The play last enjoyed a London run at the Royal Court in 2011.
Wastwater will be directed by Christien Anholt and the cast includes Mark Griffin and Selina Giles.
Synopsis: "Set within the shadow of Heathrow, three seemingly conventional yet fractured relationships are on the brink of monumental change. A mother and a son go their separate ways. Two lovers embark on sexual betrayal. A contractual arrangement takes upon a terrifying dimension."
Simon Stephens is best known for his adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, for which he won an Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2013. He previously won an Olivier in 2005, for 'On the Shore of the Wide World'.
Wastwater is named after the deepest lake in England. The show is described as a "mysterious and disturbing play that creates a complex, humane and concerned picture of the world."
