Spoons

How can spoons save your relationship?

How can spoons save your relationship? Find out in this sharp, funny and touching play about a couples counsellor's revenge. 'More people are talking more about themselves than at any time in history,' says Brenda. And she should know – she's spent 35 years with couples bickering and raging in front of her. Now it's time for Brenda to turn the tables on them.

Spoons is written by Jon Canter, who's worked with everyone from Dawn French and Richard Wilson to Fry and Laurie and Lenny Henry, and directed by Paul Schlesinger, producer of Twenty Twelve and W1A.
