Sugar Baby for Newcastle
13 September 2022
Reporter: David Upton
Alan Harris’s Sugar Baby is at Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle upon Tyne, September 20–October 8.
The show premièred at Paines Plough’s Roundabout at Summerhall in Edinburgh Fringe in 2017 and transferred to Soho Theatre in 2018.
This will mark the North East première of a one-man show that lets audiences into the world of a man who spends his time avoiding his mum, disguising his cannabis plants with fake tomatoes and bailing out his old man.
When Marc meets Lisa for the first time in years, things get even messier.
Marc will be played by Newcastle Theatre Royal graduate Ben Gettins who recently starred in Down the Lines at The Customs House in South Shields as part of their Takeover Young Writer in Residence. Sugar Baby is directed by Natasha Haws, a director from South Shields.
