Behind Closed Doors - play by Rebekah Harrison

Following a major rewrite and now under the direction of Mike Friend, assisted by Jessica Higgins, Behind Closed Doors in its new format will premiere at The Lowry Studio, Salford Quays near Manchester, on the 7th and 8th July at 8pm.

Danny and Emily are getting married... Suzy and Lee are getting by... And Jay... she’s just trying to get her own way. Fresh, pacey and in Rebekah Harrison's down-to-earth style, Behind Closed Doors is an authentic commentary on the very now.

“Behind Closed Doors touches on themes and issues we can all relate to,” says writer Rebekah Harrison. “The piece has a natural energy to it and I am really looking forward to getting it onto its feet and seeing it come to life after working on the script so much.”

The dates are Thursday July 7th and Friday July 8th , at 8pm. Tickets are on sale now from www.thelowry.com priced at £10 (£8 conc).

The cast is made up of actors who met whilst training at the Manchester School of Acting and are new up and coming Northern talent.

Writer Rebekah Harrison is relatively new to the writing world, and is thrilled to have had the opportunity to stage a script at the Lowry. “This year has been really busy in a good way. With Behind Closed Doors on at the Lowry, and also No Place Like Home, another one of my plays, being chosen to premiere at the 24:7 Theatre Festival. It’s really exciting when people start to notice your work and I’m just really looking forward to getting audience feedback on my writing.”

Rebekah has also had success with her first short film script which, after being broadcast on BBC Wales last Autumn, was nominated for BAFTA Cymru for Best Short.

The play is being produced by ‘The Milk and Two Sugars Theatre Company’. The company exists to create new work that is a thought provoking, honest commentary on the world we live in and their main aim is to create theatre that gives a snapshot of life on stage. The Milk and Two Sugars Theatre Company is very much of the opinion that it’s not about fancy footlights, clever language and pyrotechnics but real people, their highs and lows, struggles & triumphs. Behind Closed Doors is a play that encapsulates this belief and Mike Friend’s direction very much embraces this.
