2024 marks Eccentric Penguin’s 10th anniversary! To mark the occasion, we’re delighted to announce that our Summer show this year will be the black comedy PLAYING AWAY, by Janet Shaw. Here’s the synopsis:

“It’s darts time again at the Frog and Duck. The girls’ team have made the final again and the lads, well the lads are struggling. The excitement of the competition is overshadowed when a routine medical examination jeopardises the rock-solid marriage of landlord Alan and his wife Kath. Could it be that someone other than the darts team has been playing away? It’s honesty time for Gary when he has to face the truth about himself, and for Dawn, years of unrequited love are finally over. It’s crunch time for compulsive liar Danny, when he meets his match in socialite Tara Smythe-Hamilton. Throw in an interfering mother-in-law, an unintelligible Irish man and the town’s worst dieters and you have the recipe for a night of hilarity fused together with just the right amount of pathos”.
