Introducing... Spoonface Steinberg!

Introducing... Spoonface Steinberg!

The ERT are excited to announce that they will be releasing a FREE online performance of the one-woman play, Spoonface Steinberg which will be available from 26th September to 3rd October, 2020.

Written by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) and first broadcast on Radio 4 in 1997, the play follows an extraordinary story of faith, love and the meaning of life.

Watch as the story of Spoonface Steinberg, an autistic girl grappling with terminal illness, unfolds in a powerful and intensely moving monologue that turns funny frequently, poignant often and entertaining throughout.

For the production, Spoonface will be played by Evie Guttridge, an alumni of our coveted Summer Schools and a rising star in the local, national and international performing arts scene. ERT’s artistic director, Adrian Rawlins (Chernobyl, Harry Potter) directs the one-woman production.

The ERT can't wait to share this with you and hope everyone enjoys watching the show as much as they enjoyed making it!
