We've all had 'em!

Bad Dates by Theresa Rebeck

You can't stop the beat - I mean theatre! And at BMCDS we're tired of waiting to get our audiences back, so we've been making plans to get excited about performing once again.

So our next plan is to get something into rehearsal. But we can't rehearse a normal cast, so what can we do. 

Just have a single cast member!

So our own Holly Bransby has been getting ready to tread the boards again, playing the role of 'Hayley' in Theresa Rebeck's 'Bad Dates'! And we can't wait to see what she can do!

And then I realise, in this sort of strange, hallucinatory moment, that the bug guy is looking kind of good, and the things he's saying about bugs are really kind of fascinating and it is then that I realised that maybe it has been too long since I've been on a date.--So confesses a single mother and self-described restaurant idiot-savant in this thoroughly charming and slyly sweet one-woman play by the author of The Butterfly Collection and Spike Heels.

This idiosyncratic journey of self-discovery involving the Romanian mob, a Buddhist rainstorm, a teenage daughter, shoes, and a few very bad dates enjoyed an extended run Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons starring Julie White.

So at the end of August we'll be opening the doors of Centre Stage to an audience (socially distanced or otherwise) and telling Hayley's tale.

Keep your eyes peeled for ticket details as we move into summer!
