ANYONE CAN DANCE by Sean Baker – 28th April
Joe and Samantha have been in a relationship for nearly 6 months (or 5 months, 3 weeks, 2 days as Joe points out), and Joe starts to wish they’d met many years earlier and had rather more than a few months together. Samantha, however, is convinced it could never have worked as Joe thinks.
There follows a series of imagined past meetings, none of which turn out as Joe hoped they would. Samantha tells him: ‘Life isn’t a set of what-if’s. It’s what is’.
Eligible for the Best New Play award.
Joe – James Inman
Samantha – Lisa Wright
Directed by Richard McNally
About the group
Bawds was founded in 1981 in Cambridge and presents three major productions a year plus one or two festival or studio productions – some of which have been toured as far as The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Bawds has no formal membership and is administered by an annually elected committee. They have an ongoing policy of considering submissions from local directors and open auditions are advertised for all their ‘main-house’ productions.
For studio production submissions, directors have the option of submitting for consideration after having already assembled their casts and production teams.
