At the start of a typical day in the Northeast Office, Beverly deals effortlessly with ringing phones and her colleague’s romantic troubles.

Pump Girl

Final performance was January 13th, 2008

By Abbie Spallen
Directed by Carolyn Cantor

with Hannah Cabell, Geraldine Hughes, Paul Sparks

In this gripping play from one of Ireland’s brightest new talents, playwright Abbie Spallen shapes a startling tale of three lives colliding in rural Ireland. The play unfolds with the story of a homely, tomboyish pump girl at a rundown gas station. When a local racetrack star becomes the focus of her obsession, the affair threatens more than the feelings of his disenchanted wife. A blazing success last season in Edinburgh and at London’s renowned Bush Theatre, the play is in the best tradition of richly detailed and unforgettable Irish storytelling.

When Benjamin’s first novel vaults him into literary stardom, his friend David, a struggling playwright, is thrilled for his newfound success…or is he? Should Benjamin help David by using his new connections? Can David even expect such favors from his friend? And, most importantly, who should pay for lunch?
