Threshold Repertory Theatre: Becky Shaw – September 1-18th

BeckyShawWritten by Gina Ginofriddo
Directed by Jay Danner

“I’m OK. And I’m going to have fun.”

We open our 7th season with Law & Order and House of Cards writer-producer Gina Gionfriddo’s Obie Award winning and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Becky Shaw. In this show, directed by Jay Director, a newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends: wife’s best friend, meet husband’s sexy and strange new co-worker. When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in a wickedly funny play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.

“Gina Gionfriddo’s comedy of bad manners, a tangled tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women in their thirities is an engrossing as it is feriously funny like a big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last…deftly plotted, scabrous and sharp-witted…One of the great pleasures of BECKY SHAW is the way the moral ground keeps shifting underneath your feet.” – The New York Times

The prefect nourishment for theatergoers starved for a dramatic conflagration or two…Gionfriddo’s creations talk with rat-tat-tat ferocity…the laughs flow freely.” – Associated Press

September 1 – 18
Thursday – Saturday @ 7:30pm
Last two Sundays @ 3pm
Adults $25, Seniors $20, Students/Military $15

Location:  Threshold Repertory Theatre, 84 1/2 Society Street, Charleston, SC.
