WRECKS

by Neil LaBute Tue 10 Feb - Sat 28 Mar, 2009

Edward Carr is an ordinary man; a doting father of four and a successful businessman. His world has been shattered by the death of his beloved wife JoJo. Through his grief, he picks through his past, piecing together the story of his life, like the wrecks of the cars he so lovingly restores.

A fiercely passionate and unflinching monologue about the nature of life and death, and what society will accept in the name of love.

Neil LaBute's previous plays include THE WAR ON TERROR, HELTER SKELTER / LAND OF THE DEAD, THE SHAPE OF THINGS, THE MERCY SEAT, FAT PIG and IN A DARK DARK HOUSE.

Robert Glenister is known to millions for his performance as Ash Morgan in the hit BBC drama HUSTLE and as the Home Secretary in SPOOKS. His extensive theatrical career includes regular performances for the RSC, National Theatre, Royal Court and West End.

'Robert Glenister...gives a performance of insinuatingly understated power and minutely-calibrated control.'

The Stage

'The theatrical equivalent of a nuclear depth charge...another coup for Josie Rourke and a theatre that so often punches far above its weight.'
