Pavilion Theatre | Whitby Pavilion

From the award winning writer and director of The Haunting of Blaine Manor

The Bench: A Tale from Paradise Heights

It's just a bench in the park, the one by the war memorial. A thief, a fake clairvoyant, a homeless man, two teenage burglars, a street sweeper, two war veterans, an artist, a widow, a drug dealer, a real clairvoyant, a loan shark, an angel and a ghost. They've all sat here at least once this year. Before the end of the year one of them will be murdered here...

A comedy of love, life and loss.

Written & directed by Joe O'Byrne

Reviews:

Entirely gripping, utterly enthralling. A play like Joe O'Byrne's comes along to remind us all what really matters
Steve Balshaw, Grimmfest

The quality of production and script we would expect to see on the main stages of our region's theatres
David Chadderton, British Theatre Guide

Highly recommended and a play and writer that will surely go on to greater things
Kevin Bourke, Manchester Evening News

Like Jim Cartwright, O’Byrne has a knack of finding poetry in the most ordinary situations; he also has real affection for his characters, and they feel like flesh and blood people.

When are TV commissioners going to wake up and find Joe O’Byrne?
