Frankie and Johnny In The Clair De Lune

  • Northern Stage Barras Bridge Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE1 7RS United Kingdom (map)

In a 1980s New York City apartment, two down-on-their-luck lovers are on a first date. 

Hardly sweethearts, Frankie’s a cynical, buttoned-up waitress too wounded to fall in love again. But talkative divorcee Johnny, a short-order chef with his own demons, wants to give romance a second chance.

As the radio plays and moonlight filters through the apartment windows, can Johnny break through Frankie’s defences and turn a one night stand into something more before the sun comes up?

Tender and funny, Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune is an intimate look at the first fragile moments of risking your heart and taking a chance.
