LIVE THEATRE DESPITE OR THANKS TO PANDEMIC
Starring Rose Henderson and directed by Caroline FitzGerald
According to Sydney, everything has gone into decline: morality, masculinity, social behaviour… According to Sydney, the colour green should be outlawed. According to Sydney, plays should be dark, funny and short.
Rose Henderson plays Ruth, a law graduate who has been married for many years to the opinionated Sydney, who has sadly died. It’s important to spot the warning signs when a loved one is driving you over the edge, but did Ruth help him on his way? Did she go too far, in the end? Who is the woman who turned up at his funeral, wearing red shoes? Ruth didn’t mean to kill him… but in the end, something had to give.
One woman on a park bench, coming to a park, theatre or cul-de-sac near you.
