THE REVENGERS by Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood

A darkly funny tale from the North-East authors of the hit comedies Dirty Dusting and Waiting for Gateaux.

When Katy Dream left drama school she walked straight into a starring TV role in The Revengers. Sadly, her days as Gemma Peel - the leather-clad, crime-solving, kung-fu queen of Tyneside are long gone. 25 years later she's back to being plain old Katy West, the apron-clad, debt-ridden, dancing queen of Nowhere. Her husband, Jimmy, a Castro-obsessed Marxist, has been in a wheelchair since a shipyard accident and spends his time training for road races and making soup.

When Katy's new agent manages to secure her an... audition for the role of Portia in a touring production of The Merchant of Venice she sees a light at the end of the tunnel. Enter Gary, a charming but sinister loan shark, who is about to turn her world upside down…

'... while they've proved they can make us laugh, this shows they can also craft plays with real depth.' - THE METRO
