Ross & Rachel by James Fritz
The Next Studio Production Directed by Neil Kitson
3rd and 4th June, 7.45 pm Tickets on sale from early May
This new intimate play by James Fritz, Ross and Rachel, was one of the ‘critical darlings’ of 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, (“a virtuosic piece of writing”-Time Out) acted by Molly Veres. It is a true small scale, studio production, intimate with an intensity born out of the rawness of its subject matter. Joy Brankin-Frisby (last here in Betrayal) stars in our production of this disquieting duologue for one performer, which takes an unflinching look at the myths of modern love.
The play confronts what happens when two people are forced to handle the end of a relationship in the harshest of ways. It explores the idea of ‘happy-ever-after’, (sold to us by rom-coms and sitcoms, whether its’s Ross and Rachel or Romeo and Juliet), and how this affects our real-life relationships. Ross and Rachel leaves audiences thinking long and hard about love and endings of all kinds
