 “Becky Shaw” presented by City Park Players!

Directed by: Jared Guillory

In this Pulitzer Prize finalist by award-winning playwright Gina Gionfriddo, Suzanna sets up Max, her best friend, on a blind date with her husband’s co-worker, the mysterious Becky Shaw. What follows is a series of cataclysmic events that forever changes all their lives. Mixing sharp wit and humor with the taut suspense of a psychological thriller, the critically acclaimed Becky Shaw is a comedy of romantic errors that will keep audiences guessing!

“Gina Gionfriddo’s comic drama takes contemporary values and turns them upside down. All of the characters are psychologically flawed in some way, but as each scene unfolds, the moral perspective of the piece begins to shift. Max, the financial whiz-kid, begins as a brash, bombastic young man, who masks his fear of emotional intimacy with sharp wit. Then he meets Becky, a needy, neurotic mess who’s learned how to use her misfortunes to prey upon others. Ultimately, and with great subtlety, the two trade places, each turning into someone else. But these character shifts come with biting humor and a price.” – Chicago Theatre Review
