Missed Connection (Lunch / Shadowland / Lunch Girls)
Steven Berkoff / David Poyer / Ron Hart
Lunch by Steven Berkoff
A pair of lonely people meet by chance on their lunch hour, are attracted to each other, and try to compress a whole relationship into that lunch time: from early self-conscious conversations, through first fights and second thoughts to sexual fumblings in which they try to dominate each other. Lunch is a powerful example of pioneering theatre maker Steven Berkoff’s unique style of writing.
Shadowland by David Poyer
A one-act haunting drama. Pursued by disturbing dreams, Eileen visits her psychiatrist. The truth becomes increasingly elusive. She may or may not have been in an accident. An accident may or may not have happened. Perhaps even a murder? And who is the Ferryman who comes for Eileen?
Lunch Girls by Ron Hart
Lunch Girls deals with the lives of four middle-class British women who try to arrange a lunch date but find it difficult to pick a day that is suitable for all of them. It struck a chord with audiences around the world, with productions as far afield as Los Angeles, Tokyo, Jerusalem, and Bombay, as well as at the National Theatre and a UK tour starring Sylvia Syms. Lunch Girls was a joint winner of the 1983 Verity Bargate award for new, unperformed, short plays, suitable for production in a small theatre. With this criteria, it seemed an ideal choice for a Bench Fringe production.
