Seven Year Twitch by David Lewis
Published by Josef Weinberger Plays
From the Publishers:
Fran arranges a dinner party and cooks an aubergine parmigiana. Her husband Terry fails to turn up because he is searching for a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher in Norfolk. This is the last straw in their seven year marriage. Professionals are called in and friends, therapists and even the birds become embroiled in the esculating crisis in this new comedy of marital calamity by the author of How to be Happy and Monkey’s Uncle.
David Lewis’ plays Bad Faith, Sperm Wars (an earlier version of Misconceptions), Hurting, Monkey’s Uncle, Greenwash and How to be Happy have all premiered at the Orange Tree Theatre, where he won a Pearson Bursary in 1999. Misconceptions has been produced throughout the UK and by theatres in Finland, Denmark, Greece and New Zealand, while the Groges Feydeau-inspired farce Monkey’s Uncle has also been produced on the continent and in Australasia.
