IN PRODUCTION

OVERDUE

The production ran at

ALPHABETTI THEATRE

from 5-16 September 2017


and at

GEORGE STREET SOCIAL

Monday 11 September

Beth and John are happily married.  But they’re not always happy.  There are lots of things they need to talk about. 


A chance encounter with a young single mum, Izzie, reminds Beth of her past, and conversations with an enigmatic young stranger, Jack, bring her thoughts and fears into focus. 


As Beth comes to find comfort in her ongoing chats with the two youngsters, she discovers that Jack may not be a stranger, and that he seems to hold the key to a lot of the answers she has been looking for – or hiding from.

Best of Fringe 2017  North East Theatre Guide


With Rosie Stancliffe and Christopher Price,

introducting Skyla Pearce and Benjamin Michael Smith.

“An emotional trip...a strong cast and intelligent writing have produced a powerful entertaining drama...This is a great production”

(North East Theatre Guide)

“Beautifully written…sensitively directed...the performances are excellent.  The two younger cast members, both making their professional debuts, really inhabit their characters”

(British Theatre Guide)


Overdue is a sensitive, touching and funny play which looks at the ‘what ifs’ and ‘never weres’; the difficult decisions we make, and how those choices and their unspoken effects can shape our lives.

Arnott's work is well-known for being witty and insightful, adjectives which certainly apply to Overdue. A gritty, moving, mesmerising insight into relationships, coming to terms with the past and moving on. A total triumph.
