Following its summer run in the West End, Stella Feehily’s new comedy about a dysfunctional family, set against the collapse of the financial world Dreams Of Violence is the first major touring drama to visit Exeter Northcott during this autumn season.
Running from Tuesday, October 13 to Saturday, October 17, it’s presented by Out Of Joint, who have performed She Stoops To Conquer, A Laughing Matter and The Permanent Way at the Northcott in the past.
The tour features the same cast as the West End run, including Catherine Russell as Hildy and former Man About The House actress Paula Wilcox as Shirley.
Stella Feehily’s first play Duck was an Edinburgh Festival hit for Out of Joint and the Royal Court and led to the commission for O Go My Man, about love and ambition amongst 30-somethings in modern Dublin. Her Royal Court “Rough Cut” Think Global, Fuck Local explored sex and partying amongst NGO and aid workers. She is under commission to both The Royal Court and National Theatre.
• A Doll’s House is at the Northcott until September 26. See some of the production pictures.
