Presented by Adam Blanshay Productions, What’s In a Name? will run at the city venue from Tuesday 1 October until Saturday 5 October as part of a UK tour.
The witty and razor-sharp production, which opened to critical acclaim at the Birmingham Rep in 2017 tells the story of father-to-be Vincent and his partner Anna who are invited to dinner by his sister Elizabeth and her husband, Peter.
They are joined by childhood friend Carl for a mature and sophisticated gathering. The meal is lovingly prepared, and wine carefully selected. The friends are prepared for the usual humorous exchanges they've come to expect.
But when a startling revelation about the name chosen for Vincent's and Anna’s expected child becomes the catalyst for a destructive argument which spirals hysterically out of control. Tonight no one is holding back! Egos, childish resentment and unspoken feelings are relentlessly and hilariously exposed for the first time.
Joe, who plays Vincent will be joined on stage by, James Lance (Jeeves and Wooster, Northern Soul), Summer Strallen (Top Hat, Young Frankenstein) and Alex Gaumond (Company, Dirty Rotten Scoundrel, Matilda). Further casting is to be announced.
What’s In A Name? is written by Matthew Delaporte and Alexandre De La Patellière with adaptation, translation and direction by Jeremy Sams. Set will be designed by Francis O’Connor and lighting design is by Rick Fisher.
