Off Main Stage Presents
Lone Star Diner
by Cameron Corcoran
“In this cleverly constructed and written drama... Corcoran's defined, distinct, almost filmic style… is engrossing, sharply-observed and, without doubt, a piece of work that has, and deserves a future.” Review Chap (****)
Time moves slowly in the Texas desert and on an empty stretch of road sits the Lone Star Diner, a place people end up when they're lost or unlucky. June waits on the tables for her unsavoury boss, and on a fateful Friday afternoon she's made a proposition by the enigmatic regular to change her life forever. Haunted by her past, June takes destiny into her own hands, to slice out a piece of America for herself. For June, the American Dream's over... now it's just about taking what you can before the heads roll.
“An intriguing portrayal of vulnerability, frustration and determination.” Londontheatre1 (****)
Off Main Stage are proud to work with the White Bear Theatre in returning this production to London, that’s been re-worked, re-freshed and re-imagined for a public audience to share in June’s story as she experiences liberation from the cruel men in her life. Directed and starring Polly Waldron, Corcoran’s perception of the American Dream is laid bare as he aims to reveal a nightmare.
“The dialogue is poetic and intense, and the balance of action and quieter contemplation is engaging.” National Theatre New Work Department
