Frankie and Johnny In The Clair de Lune

The Chronicle - - What’s On -

North­ern Stage

This play, set in a 1980s New York City apart­ment, sees two down-on-their-luck mid­dle-age lovers on a first date. Frankie is a cyn­i­cal wait­ress with a dry sense of hu­mour and too wounded to fall in love again while starry-eyed Johnny, an over-eager chef with his own demons, wants to give romance a sec­ond chance. As the ra­dio plays and moon­light fil­ters through the apart­ment win­dows, can Johnny, played by EastEn­ders star Richard Black­wood, break through Frankie’s de­fences and turn a one-night stand into some­thing more be­fore the sun comes up? Those who have seen the hit film ver­sion, will know the answer to that. It runs un­til June 2. For evening and mati­nee per­for­mance times see www.north­ern­stage.co.uk
