Description

Careless follows best friends Sam, a care assistant, and Bryony, a struggling actor. Sam had no prior experience in healthcare and with only two weeks of training she threw herself into the job. Her typical working day couldn’t be more different from Bryony's. It’s the night of Bryony’s 25th birthday: over prosecco, shots and killer dance moves they are suddenly faced with truths neither of them can avoid. Written Off Theatre examines the complexities of female friendship when worlds collide under the pressures of working in social care. Will their friendship survive the night?

A thoughtful, funny and incredibly well written piece of theatre that deserves to be seen. It’s simplistic in its execution but full of nuance and complexity. The actors/creators have truly made a brilliant piece of theatre that speaks to contemporary audiences.

A fantastic two person act that made the whole room erupt in laughter, all whilst exploring some sensitive and topical subjects that we should probably all CARE more about! Highly recommend adding this talented duo to your fringe list.

A flat share comedy with a twist! Full of drama and laughs highlighting the challenges of careers in both acting and caring post pandemic. Highly recommended.
