Pluck Productions are a theatre company founded by an actor and actress who got tired of waiting for the phone to ring – so they started their own company instead! To date they have produced six full-scale shows, one of which was the sharp and biting new comedy ‘Birthday Suit’ by David K. Barnes.
The hysterical production is about a cringeworthy after-work birthday party where only one couple shows up and has to endure the host and one other mystery guest with a vendetta. An uncomfortable night ensues for the characters, and a side-splitting one is created for the audience. The show stars Liam Bewley (Richard), Philip Honeywell (Nick), EJ Martin (Diane) and Emily Stride (Valerie). The production was directed by Alice Malin and played at the Old Red Lion Theatre, London for four weeks in 2017. It was nominated for three OFFIES, including Best New Play, and received some rave reviews.
