A Behanding in Spokane
28 July @ 7.30 pm - 9.30 pmAED 100
H72 Productions is bringing Martin McDonagh’s black comedy to the Junction. It’s a characteristically interesting choice: the play is set in a seedy hotel room where a one-handed man named Carmichael is negotiating with a couple of incompetent small-time crooks for the return of the missing appendage. “It’s such a perfect, demented marriage of character and environment that you can’t help grinning like a fool,” as the New York Times review of the play’s opening night in 2010 put it. There’s strong language, not least a welter of sexual and racial epithets, but the downmarket Grand Guignol atmosphere of the play should justify it. As with most H72 shows, it’s directed by Gautam Goenka.
There are further performance on 29 June at 3.30 and 7.30pm.
