Firecracker Productions presents BECKY SHAW by Gina Gionfriddo

Becky Shaw follows a newlywed couple who fixes up two romantically challenged friends: wife's best friend, meet husband's sexy and strange new co-worker. When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in this wickedly funny play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.
Becky Shaw won the 2009 Outer Critics Circle Award, and was a finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the Lucille Lortel Award and Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play. Gina Gionfriddo was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for another play-"Rapture, Blister, Burn".

Kelsey McMillan returns to Firecracker Productions to direct Becky Shaw, after previously directing ‘No Exit’ and ‘Belleville’. McMillan most recently directed ‘El Nogalar’ with Obsidian Theater.

“Firecracker has allowed me to work on shows that really delve into the fragility of human relationships, which I love in a script.” McMillan says. “Becky Shaw is no different; it is a darkly funny and realistic exploration of how our actions can have unintended consequences in each others lives.”
