The Nap

Broadway
Play
Original
MTC opens its 2018-19 season with the American premiere of a new play by Richard Bean, the author of the rollicking, award-winning Broadway comedy One Man, Two Guvnors. The Nap is a very funny look at the world of snooker—the British version of pool. Dylan Spokes, a fast-rising young star arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities warning him of the repercussions of match fixing. Before he knows it, Dylan’s forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of wildly colorful characters that include his ex-convict dad, saucy mum, quick-tongued manager and a renowned gangster, to boot. It’s a fast-paced comedy thriller where, in an exciting twist, the tournament unfolds live on stage.
