Please see below for a synopsis of the show:
Matty Beancourt, a life-affirming, slightly naïve woman in her late fifties, lives alone in a small town near London. When she reads the autobiography of famous painter Mark Gorman, who grew up in the same East End streets as her, she becomes so enthused by his childhood memories – so similar to hers – that she decides to write to him. Weeks later she receives a not exactly encouraging reply but, chatty by nature, Matty adamantly keeps writing and a correspondence develops with the cantankerous and moody artist. When she spontaneously decides to pay him a surprise visit, she discovers that her idol isn’t the shining star she held him to be and leads a far less glamourous life she imagined. But Matty isn’t a woman to shy away from a challenge. A difficult friendship starts to blossom between these two diverging characters and their impact upon each other is startling.
Groupie is a charming and touching play about affection and friendship, dreams and hopes in those past the “prime of their life”.
