Katie Redford’s debut play Tapped to have world premiere at Theatre503

The world premiere of Katie Redford’s debut play Tapped is to run at Theatre503.

It will be the inaugural production from Bethany Cooper Productions in a co-production with Theatre503.

Jennifer Daley plays Dawn alongside Olivia Sweeney playing Jen and Max Hastings as Gavi

Ever wanted more from life? These three have.

Tapped is a heart-warming comedy that explores the importance of acceptance, fulfilment and (lack of) hope. In Stapleford, Nottingham, aka Stabbo, we meet Gavi, Jen and Dawn at an amateur self-help group who all share one commonality; they’re desperate for escapism.

A play about fears, hopes, having big dreams in small places and how the idea of change is far easier said than done.

Katie Redford, said: “The first short play I ever wrote was on at Theatre503, so to have my debut professional play there is really exciting. Tapped is a play about eating too many Club biscuits, never getting round to fixing the shower and reminiscing about the days of SMTV Live.

“But fundamentally, it’s also about feeling stuck and fiercely longing for human connection. Even if we do share different opinions on which is the best Club biscuit. (The green one. Always the green one.)”
