News The Price of Everything, a Look Behind the Closed Doors of a Wealthy Home, to Premiere in U.K.
Fiona Evans' new play, The Price of Everything, which looks at the home and family life of a millionaire businessman, will have its world premeire at The Stephen Joseph Theatre Company in Scarborough, England, Oct. 28-Nov. 13. An official opening is set for Nov. 2.

Noreen Kershaw will direct a cast which will include Andrew Dunn, Julie Riley and Jodie Comer. According to SJT notes, "Eddie Carver is a self-made businessman. In stark contrast to his humble beginnings he now boasts a millionaire lifestyle: exotic holidays, flashy cars and real designer clothes. Not to mention exclusive country pursuits: hunting, shooting and fishing. Wife Pam and daughter Ruby want for nothing, and expect the best. And because of Eddie’s expertise they’ll never be disappointed. Then one evening Eddie’s behavior becomes erratic. Have some dodgy business dealings come back to haunt him? Will the high walls, electric fences and CCTV keep evil at bay? Or is the real threat to the family’s idyllic life already inside the perimeter?"

Evans' previous plays include Geoff Dead: Disco for Sale and Scarborough. She has also written episodes of "Coronation Street," "Shameless, "Emmerdale" and "Heartbeat" and appeared on the BBC series "Life on Mars."

The Stephen Joseph Theatre is widely known for giving first life to many plays by Alan Ayckbourn, who served as artistic director there for many years. For more information and tickets, visit
