Frank is very excited to announce that the Arts Council of Wales are supporting the autumn 2010 tour of his brand new play – Barkin’.
It’s new. It’s funny. It’s poignant.
This autumn, Barkin’ will be presented by Grassroots Productions and Rhondda Cynon Taf Theatres. It is a brand new black comedy written by and starring Frank Vickery, and directed by Phil Clark.
This tightly woven drama is a rich cocktail of pathos and humour, dark secrets and unrealised dreams.
Stevie has lived all her life with her domineering mother and feels trapped by the responsibility of caring for her, while her seemingly carefree brother is living life to the full. Now, has the day finally arrived when Stevie can, at last, experience the freedom she has yearned for? Or will she discover that things are not quite what they appear to be?
Barkin’, Frank’s first new play in over three years is an incisive, engaging, and darkly comic drama. Using his usual humour and realism, this black comedy explores issues that many of us can certainly identify with.
