From the multi-award winning writer behind ‘Moonstruck’, ‘Doubt’ and ‘Danny and the Deep Blue Sea’, all sorts productions is proud to present a unique, 'fly on the wall' experience ofJohn Patrick Shanley’s ‘Savage in Limbo’
Directed by Maurice Mammoliti, 'Savage in Limbo' will immerse you back in the 80s, in the heart of The Bronx, New York. A dive bar called ‘Scales’, sees five forgotten school friends who meet in an explosive tale of forgotten souls.
Savage in Limbo tells the story of five high school misfits that serendipitously meet. Whilst trying to find themselves; they find each other.
Denise Savage, a frustrated and perennial loner, feels that losing her virginity is the only way to achieve the change she yearns.
Linda Rotunda, a hot headed overripe Italian, has been blindsided by the man that she loves, Tony, who is leaving her to pursue “ugly girls,” and who himself has found a thirst for knowledge.
April, a failed nun, who’s hard life has led her to this moment. And Murk, her confidant and the unintentional gatekeeper of this miserable bunch as the owner of ‘Scales’, who himself is lost in the world of his own misfortune.
To make a change in their mundane lives and to escape Limbo, they must hash it out.
Come on this roller coaster ride of emotions that is, John Patrick Shanley’s ‘Savage in Limbo’.
