Jenny Wren Productions return to the Everyman Studio Theatre with Funny Boy, a new play developed from last year’s The Pygmalion Project.
Set in 1969, in the stable of a large country house, this is a modern take on an old story about status, society and success. Mother and son sneak separately to the stable for a secret cigarette. The stable is home to a promising young racehorse, cared for by two women who love and cherish him as the mother loves and cherishes the son. Many hopes lie on the son and the horse, but can they be fulfilled? Is success dependent on fame and breeding?
“I'm the greatest star, I am, by far, but no one knows it.”
