Two Shillings and Sixpence presents

by Simon Stephens

From Simon Stephens, the award winning playwright of
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
, comes Wastwater, from the same company of actors who brought last years Bluebird to the Tabard Theatre.

'clever, classy and well directed with a terrific team of actors.'

'entertaining and thought-provoking,
full of vivid imagery of people who live in the shadows'

'skilfully acted and engrossing to watch'
The Stage Review

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.

Within these inextricably linked lives, Simon Stephens combination of black humour and emotional insight has crafted a play that combines agonising moments of terror with moving sensitivity.

Simon Stephens is an award-winning playwright, and the Artistic Associate of the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith. He has won the Olivier Award for Best New Play twice, once for On the Shore of the Wide World in 2005, and recently in 2013 for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Wastwater premiered at the Royal Court in 2011 and this new Tabard production represents its first London revival.

Directed by Christien Anholt (Reunion, Relic Hunter, Hamlet), the cast includes Mark Griffin (Gladiators, Daddy Day Care, Dr Who) and Selina Giles (V for Vendetta, Until Death, Restoration).

Simon Stephen's mysterious and disturbing play creates a complex, humane and concerned picture of the world and plays a limited run at the Tabard Theatre.
