Tragedy and chips
Beth and Mack live in the back room of the Captain Twocooks fish and chip shop somewhere in the East Riding. Upstairs, unseen, but far from unheard, lies the Captain, slowly dying. His presence broods over the business. Beth struggles to cope. Has he written a will? What will happen when he goes? Will he ever go? Will anyone help him go? And what do you do with a body?
A funny and contemporary murder mystery where a deep-fried thriller twists and turns into a fast-food reality.
Director Adrian Rawlins says ‘Much loved New Zealand writer Joe Bennett was given the challenge of writing a play based on Macbeth set in an East Riding chip shop! After many collaborative twists and turns, the result is Chippy.”
Chippy premieres at ERT before transferring to New Zealand. The show is ERT’s first international collaboration with Lyttleton Arts Factory, New Zealand.
Starring Hester Ullyart (Paragon Station/Paragon Dreams Hull Truck) & Tom Trevella.
