What is the Play about?
There are a lot of resources on the web about this play. If you do not know anything about this play before, you could start with either the play’s Wikipedia page and/or the BBC’s GCSE Bitesize. Both sites give an excellent summary of the play’s synopsis and character analysis.
Nicola plays Beatrice, the wife of the main character, Eddie Cardone. “Beatrice” is described in some sources as “a loud mouthed housewife with a heart of gold”. This should be an interesting part for Nicola as it is a character she has not played before. “Beatrice” is stuck in a loveless marriage. There is no better person to play a woman starved of love and affection than Nicola!
The Young Vic is a theatre partner of Digital Theatre. Dare one hope that this production will be available as a digital download at some stage?
We will update this Post as soon as we have more information.
