Promotional images have been released for the upcoming European premiere of the play, running at the Finborough Theatre from the 31st March until the 25th April.

Directed by Jimmy Walters, the production is set to star  Kristin Atherton (Julius CaesarAntony and CleopatraTitus Andronicus  for the Royal Shakespeare Company, The Hard Problem and Three Winters for the National Theatre, and Waterloo Road) and Sean Rigby (DS Jim Strange in all seven seasons of Endeavour, and Pomona at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, and the National Theatre).

Love in the bleachers. Blood on the ice. The usual small town affair.

Teddy and Donna are two lonely working-class single parents who meet at their children’s minor league ice-hockey match.

Teddy is competitive, over-dominating and believes that winning is everything, while Donna is just happy that her son is in the team enjoying himself.

Sitting together over the course of the season, they find themselves growing ever closer together, until an explosive event makes them realise that passion and violence don’t just happen on the ice…

Hockey Mum, Hockey Dad will run at the Finborough Theatre from the 31st March until the 25th April.
