STARC Productions returns to the Bakehouse Theatre this October with the much loved romance Frankie & Johnny in the Clair de Lune by Tony award-winning playwright Terrence McNally.
The play is a fly-on-the-wall experience of the heart-warming, sometimes comical and often deeply personal and intimate moments shared between two working class middle-aged New Yorkers in the final hours of their first date.
Set in Frankie's Manhattan apartment, away from the prying eyes of the big city, the characters embark upon a journey of self-discovery and acceptance along which they guide and support each other and through which they are able to bond and grow as they debate whether or not to take a chance on love.
It is a story of human connection, unlikely attraction, the discovery of trust and above all else, love and our very human need to be loved.
“McNally's great gift is his flamboyant wit, but his comedy is permeated with an intimate understanding of the flip side of love — loss.” New York Times
“…Frankie & Johnny is a beautiful balance between reality and romance.” Variety
This is a poignant romantic comedy not to be missed!
