"You love someone, you can feel it, like a lump, summat you carry around with yer. Bloody hell, it's either there or it int, like a hat." If Romeo and Juliet had lived, would their marriage have survived? How long? Ten years? Twenty? Fifty? How would the union have coped with poverty, corruption, his ignorance, her aspiration, an ungrateful daughter, no sons, infidelity with an attractive bloke on a night class, God knows how many miscarriages and even murder? A honeymoon suite in Bridlington. Eddie and Irene begin married life with great excitement, but the future may have other ideas... HONEYMOON SUITE is Richard Bean's third play at the Royal Court following TOAST and UNDER THE WHALEBACK (the latter was awarded the 2002 George Devine Award). HONEYMOON SUITE was awarded the 2003 Pearson New Play of the Year Award. English Touring Theatre is renowned for its productions of classics and new work, including Peter Gill's THE YORK REALIST, seen at the Royal Court in 2002 and winner of the 2002 Critics' Circle Award. "This new piece sees him entering the premier league of young British dramatists." Daily Telegraph on Richard Bean's UNDER THE WHALEBACK "English Touring Theatre a tour de force."
