Lunch and the Bow of Ulysses at the Trafalgar Studio Two
Shaun Dooley (Broadchurch, Cuffs, Misfits) and Emily Bruni (Peep Show, Life in Squares) star in a major West End season of Steven Berkoff one-act plays, Lunch and The Bow of Ulysses, directed by Nigel Harman.
Lunch (1983) and it’s sequel The Bow of Ulysses (2002) are two of Berkoff’s finest small pieces, examining the relationship between a couple when they first meet and have, what appears to be, an abortive one-night-stand; and how they are years later after two decades of marriage.
Lunch and the Bow of Ulysses run from 6 October 2016 until 5 November 2016 at Trafalgar Studio Two.
Witness a couple meeting for the first time, on a bench in a park near the sea. Then find them again years later, and experience through them the paradoxical isolation and partnership that comes after two decades of coupledom.
Lunch and its sequel The Bow of Ulysses are two of Berkoff’s finest small pieces examining human relationships.
Nigel Harman directs with design by Lee Newby (Grand Hotel, Dogfight), lighting by Joshua Carr (Hangmen, West End), sound by Ben & Max Ringham and movement by Alistair David.
Important Info: The floor in the Studio 2 has been laid with wooden decking, meaning that anyone wearing stiletto shoes could get their heel caught between two pieces of wood. Westminster Council, who health-and-safety check all our sets, have said that for this production patrons cannot be admitted to Studio 2 in stiletto shoes. If patrons attend the production in stilettoes, they will be required to change into alternative footwear before entering the auditorium.
