The Decorator - The Space
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
StoneCrabs Theatre is presenting The Decorator, Donald Churchill’s much loved farce about seduction, revenge and mistaken identity, at The Space – from June 25 to June 29, 2013.
The Decorator is set in Rio de Janeiro in the swinging Sixties. The Girl from Ipanema is sunbathing at the beach; in the apartment across the road, 40 year old Marcia is in a very difficult position: Jane, the wife of her lover, turns up on her doorstep, there to take her revenge by telling Marcia’s husband of his wife’s infidelity.
Marcia is at her wits end until she has a brilliant idea. It seems that her house decorator is a part-time actor and so Marcia hires him to impersonate her husband.
Franko Figueiredo (Brazilian International Press Award 2011) directs a cast that comprises Brazilian actors Tereza Araujo (Brazilian International Press Award 2012), Marcio Mello and Maria Alencar.
Tickets: £14/£10 – available from the box office on 020 7515 7799 or online at www.space.org.uk/.
