Description

'I’m 36, I’m a comedian, and I’m about to kill my boyfriend...' A permanently single, professionally neurotic stand-up finally meets Mr Right and then does everything wrong. But is Mr Right quite what he seems? And how far will the comedian go to get a laugh? A dark new comedy about vulnerability, intimacy, ego and truth from the Olivier Award-winning producers of Fleabag and Baby Reindeer. Starring Tony and Olivier-nominated actor Samuel Barnett. Written by Marcelo Dos Santos (Lionboy, Complicite) and directed by Matthew Xia (Blue/Orange, Young Vic).

A fantastic script, great acting, excellent story. The round venue works great for sharing the emotional roller coaster of laughs, cringe and tragedy.

Brilliant show that twists-and-turns, making you laugh one minute and wince with discomfort the next. Samuel Barnett is incredible, and the play is beautifully written. Go and see it for sure!

Barnett grips the audience from start to finish leaving us like putty in the hands of a controlling lover.
