THE NAP BY RICHARD BEAN
A new comedy thriller by Richard Bean
Directed by Richard Wilson
‘…put your hands together for Sheffield’s very own, born down the Eccy Road, in S11, he’s in heaven, he’s in the second round, he’s in his own town, not wearing a dressing gown, he’s the son of his folks, it’s Dylan Spokes!’
Dylan isn’t your typical snooker player. He’s a vegetarian, for starters. This is the biggest week of his life and everybody wants a piece of him – his ex-con Dad, local gangster Waxy Chuff and the snooker corruption squad.
A world première from Richard Bean, the award-winning writer of One Man, Two Guvnors, The Nap is a laugh out loud comedy thriller about love, honour and not getting snookered.
Assistant Directors - Celine Lowenthal and Charlie Kenber.
