Spoonface Steinberg

by Lee Hall

Hull Truck Theatre, April 2012

"A luminous performance" WhatsOnStage

Spoonface Steinberg is about a young autistic Jewish girl who, learning that she is terminally ill, contemplates the meaning of life and death in a dramatic monologue interwoven with operatic extracts from the magical voice of Maria Callas.

"Pippa Duffy is compelling as Spoonface" Hull Daily Mail


"And what was the meaning of all these things? And the meaning was as if you found the spark - and it was finding the sparks inside you and setting them free."

"Pippa Duffy plays the role beautifully and truthfully" Yorkshire Post
