Starbound Theatre, Marta da Silva’s theatre company, are putting on the play ‘PIZZA MAN’ by Darlene Craviotto at the Etcetera Theatre on 5-9th of December.
Starbound Theatre is a brand new, international, London-based theatre company exploring the theme of identity.
Dark and riotously funny, the ‘PIZZA MAN’ is as relevant today as it was when first performed in 1982.
It’s a hot summer evening in New York City and Julie Rodgers has had a bad day. She’s just been fired after being propositioned by her boss. She’s broke, disillusioned, and decides to drink the pain away. Her roommate, Alice, comes home wild and frantic. Her boyfriend has gone back to his wife, kick starting her unhealthy eating habits.
Julie suggests another way to vent their man-induced frustrations: they should pick a guy, any guy… and take advantage of him. Men have been doing it for years, why can’t a woman try it?
Enter: an unsuspecting pizza delivery man. Coaxed into the flat to share an innocent beer with two women.
The evening gets wilder, crazier, angrier, and very, very funny.
Marta is producing and performing in the play as the character “Julie”.
