Bourne West Productions are thrilled to announce that they will be producing a brand new play by Jonathan Stephenson at the award winning theatre The Bread & Roses in Clapham, London.
Ruby deals with discussions on what makes a great curry, class, sexual politics, dented pride, mourning and studies if there really can be friendship between two people that have a troubled past.
It's been awhile since Verity has had any fun. It's been a troubling few years for her. She broke up with her boyfriend Ed during the recession. Her mother's cancer came back and there were difficult decisions to be made. Ed knocks on the door one evening and brings back to the surface repressed feelings and dented pride. Can Verity reveal to Ed what her Mum had asked her? Can there be a reconciliation with the past or will it hang around their necks for the distant future? As past and present collide there are important questions to be asked. What's the best curry out there?
