Scott Barnett’s Resolution opens at The Space as part of their Autumn/Winter Season 2015.
This bittersweet, comedy-drama was first selected for a rehearsed reading as part of Ideastap Takeover Festival: Love, 2014 – before being longlisted for the Theatre503 Playwriting Award, 2014 – from over 1600 submissions.
Resolution traces the fault lines of a modern breakup back to its source. Jumping through the years, each scene is a snapshot of Lucy and Jason’s relationship as the final moments of the year tick down to midnight.
This witty new play takes a poke at the classic rom-com – it’s Harry Met Sally, if they were British and a real couple who live in the flat upstairs. Resolution tells a simple story of real-life love and finds the magical in the mundane against the backdrop of New Year’s Eve.
★★★★ ’A great show…go and see “Resolution” as soon as possible.’ – LondonTheatre1
Resolution will be Scott’s first full-length production with Rannygazoo Theatre Company – a London based, new-writing theatre company – producing work that sees the beauty in the banal, fostering stories that live in that place where comedy and drama collide.
