Fresh from playing Chief Engineer Nikolai Fomin in the new, hit, H.B.O series Chernobyl.
Adrian is thrilled to be directing at ERT again and also to be collaborating once more with artists in New Zealand especially Mike Friend, Artistic Director of Lyttleton Arts Factory who will be directing the New Zealand version of the show early next year.
Commenting on the joint venture, Adrian says;
“After the success of taking ERT’s production of Oliver Twist to the Lyttelton Arts Factory in New Zealand, I am thrilled to be directing Chippy in this ongoing creative international collaboration pairing local talent with New Zealand’s finest.”
“Much loved New Zealand writer Joe Bennett was given the challenge of writing a play based on Macbeth set in an East Riding chip shop! After many collaborative twists and turns, the result is Chippy.”
Beth and Mack live in the back room of the Captain Twocooks fish and chip shop somewhere in the East Riding. Upstairs, unseen, but far from unheard, lies the Captain, slowly dying.
His presence broods over the business. Beth struggles to cope. Has he written a will? What will happen when he goes? Will he ever go? Will anyone help him go? And what do you do with a body?
A funny and contemporary murder mystery where a deep-fried thriller twists and turns into a fast-food reality.
Starring Hester Ullyart (Paragon Station/Paragon Dreams – Hull Truck Theatre) & New Zealand native Tom Trevella
