Between Riverside and Crazy

“Son, that girl, she’s a nice girl, but she don’t study accounting. Her lips move when she read the horoscope – that ain’t the mark of a future accountant!” Since his wife died, ex-cop Walter ‘Pops’ Washington has filled his palatial rent-controlled apartment in one of Manhattan’s most desirable areas with an oddball extended family of petty criminals. So now he’s besieged by the landlords, who want him out, the NYPD, who want him to settle his lawsuit against them, and the ladies from the local church, who want to save his soul… But Pops, calm at the eye of the storm, is going to do precisely what Pops wants to do… Stephen Adly Guirgis’ fast-moving Rabelaisian tragicomedy was a Broadway hit and won multiple awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. His other plays include Jesus Hopped the A-Train, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot and The Motherf**ker with the Hat. Michael Longhurst returns to Hampstead following his triumphant productions of Caroline or Change, Gloria and The Blackest Black. His other productions include Next to Normal, The Band’s Visit and Constellations (all Donmar). ‘Astonishing… as it flips between comedy and tragedy on its way to the truth in between’ New York Times __Access performances__ Captioned performance – 11th June 19:30
