Monday 14 January - Saturday 26 January 2013

The Print Room launches our new space THE PRINT ROOM BALCONY with the premiere of:

IVY & JOAN by James Hogan


Performed by Lynne Miller and Steven Beard

Directed by Simon Usher

Late in life two women start new lives and leave home. But where is home? Did they ever really have one?

Two intimate, funny and heartbreaking tales of loss.

Ivy is a barmaid forced to retire. She has worked and lived in the same hotel for 40 years, waiting for a lover to return and claim her. Putting on a brave face, she spends her last few minutes in employment offering her wise counsel in the staff room. No one is listening.

Joan has travelled to Venice with her husband. A Sunday painter, drawn to the splendour of Venetian art, she hopes for inspiration. When she comes across a joyous wedding procession in St Mark's Square she is reminded of what is really missing in her life.

Playwright James Hogan's work has been performed at various London fringe venues including the Gate Theatre, the Cockpit, the Red Lion, and the King's Head. He founded Oberon Books in 1986 championing plays by unknown writers, publishing them in high quality editions, a policy which Oberon maintains to this day.
