Ryan Craig’s new play makes its appearance at the Hampstead Theatre from March 2017, with Sara Kestelman starring under the direction of Edward Hall.
Filthy Business appears in a year that brings of range of must-sees to the North London venue, with Pulitzer finalist Gloria set for an appearance in the summer, and it is bound to make an impression as it delves into Britain’s past.
The show focuses on the plight of a particular family in the 1960s and the efforts of the matriarch to keep their business under their name. It is the latest show from someone whose work has previously been staged at numerous venues across the capital and is presented by the Hampstead’s current Artistic Director.
Yetta Solomon is the mentioned matriarch in Filthy Business and she has managed to create a successful business in East London in the late 1960s. But the hardship she has faced has strengthened her resolve and hardened her, making it all the more dramatic when her family decides they don’t share her dream of keeping it a family-run business.
People wondering if this will offer a compelling evening at the theatre only have to look at the credentials of Ryan Craig to see what is on offer. The playwright has presented shows at the Hampstead Theatre before, writing The Glass Room for the venue back in 2006 and also penning shows like The Holy Rosenbergs and We Lost Elijah for the National Theatre (the latter as the venue’s Writer in Residence). With plenty of shows on the horizon and interest in this latest venture for the Hampstead he continues to impress.
Filthy Business runs at the Hampstead Theatre from Friday 10th March 2017.
