Over the years, Curious has become known for our own brand of “drama-dies” – eccentric, unpredictable comedies, that also have a surprising dark and dramatic side. Sound familiar? It’s been several years since we’ve had the opportunity to return to this trademark style, but it’s back in full stride with BECKY SHAW! This entertaining and startling play will keep you guessing, taking sides, and wondering what will happen next…

A blind date takes a dark turn in this wickedly funny comedy; deviant and hilarious behavior ensues after a newly married couple fixes up their romantically challenged friend Max with a mysterious co-worker, Becky Shaw. From their first date, which includes a gun, $200, and a visit to the police station, this collection of social misfits continue to surprise us and themselves, in a tale of slippery slopes and thrilling suspense that asks: what do we owe the people we love – or the strangers who land on our doorstep?
