Moya Productions and the Old Red Lion Theatre have announced the world première production of Mark Weinman’s Dyl. Artistic Director of the Old Red Lion, Clive Judd, directs and the production will open on the 9 May and run until 3 June.
In Dyl, James is 400 miles from home. A new career as a rigger – two weeks onshore, two weeks offshore. James exists between two very different spaces; and his daughter Dyl is with him in neither of them. Instead he has Ryan, his live-in landlord – sarcastic, free-spirited and liable to say what he thinks before he thinks what he says. As James focuses on finding the answers from within himself, he risks losing the very relationships that can keep him on track.
A sad comedy, about isolation, the righting of wrongs and shouldering life’s responsibilities.
Clive Judd said “I am delighted to launch my first full season as Artistic Director at the Old Red Lion with the world première of this brilliantly funny and moving first play by Mark Weinman. This project marks a new phase of our working relationship following our collaboration as director and actor on Captain Amazing in 2013.”
Dyl is at The Old Red Lion Theatre from 9th May until 3rd June
