Honeymoon Suite


Honeymoon Suite

A new play by Richard Bean

"You love someone, you can feel it, like a lump, summat you carry around with yer. Bloody hell, it's either there or it int, like a hat."

If Romeo and Juliet had lived, would their marriage have survived? How long? Ten years? Twenty? Fifty? How would the union have coped with poverty, corruption, his ignorance, her aspiration, an ungrateful daughter, no sons, infidelity with an attractive bloke on a night class, God knows how many miscarriages and even murder?

Richard Bean’s previous work includes Toast and Under The Whaleback (the latter was awarded the 2002 George Devine Award). Honeymoon Suite was awarded the 2003 Pearson New Play of the Year Award. 

English Touring Theatre is renowned for its productions of classic and new work, including Peter Gill’s The York Realist, winner of the 2002 Critics’ Circle Award.

“This new piece sees him entering the premier league of young British dramatists.”
