A completely engaging hour of theatre featuring two fantastic actors with great chemistry! It absolutely reminded me of the works of Beckett and Pinter - what a great way to examine the dynamic of toxic friendships and co-dependencies. If you want a dark drama sprinkled with surrealism, this show is for you!

Fritz & Matlock is theatre at it’s finest - bold, exciting writing, supremely talented performers and relevant, brave themes. A show you simply CANNOT miss.
