Following the success at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe with the five-star show After Today, Stage D’Or returns with their latest work from acclaimed playwright Tim Connery. Donna Ryeman’s friend meets a hitman in a pub as she wants her husband dead. He is reluctant to accept, particularly as it seems that Donna Ryeman’s friend may not be 'all there' even though she has a certificate to prove her sanity. Will he take the job? What’s with the Post-it Notes? Why is the pub suddenly so empty? And who is having an affair with her husband?

Great drama-edy. Both leads are excellent and the well written dialogue zips along . It made me realise how much I love live theatre. And as with all good drama a lovely twist at the end. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is a superb little gem of a show with a couple of mesmerising performers. The writing by Tim Connery switches from witty to menacing & back again by various circuitous routes skillfully guided with direction by director Doug Kirby. Don’t miss this show and it’s partner piece “The Legacy If William Ireland” by the same creative team

Hitman and Her (***)
A blabber mouth middle aged woman has an appointment with a middle aged hitman in a bar to arrange the murder of her husband of eight years. This comedy well mines her indiscretion in openly discussing murder, as well as his focus on movies and television. I loved his paean to the original “The Italian Job” movie as he lauds its stars, director, composer, and lack of CGI.

This was the 23rd most enjoyable of the 76 shows I have seen so far this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website: www.fringefan.com.

This is a very funny play! Great writing and detailed, well-crafted acting with unexpected twists. Tim Connery really is going from strength to strength: his writing is so imaginative and well-observed. The two actors inhabit their characters with all their obsessions, and ... there are a lot of them ... and keep the audience on the hook throughout.

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 108 days ago

A woman walks into a bar. She (Lou Kendon-Ross) tries to persuade a reluctant hitman, (Alex Dee), to kill her adulterous husband. The premise of the play might be simple, yet the plot and performances are far from it, as Tim Connery’s new writing takes the audience on an hour...

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 110 days ago

After suppressing our excitement that the title might refer to some form of dramatisation of Pete Waterman and Michaela Strachan’s cult late-night clubbing show of the 1990s, what we experience instead is a two-handed comedy thriller which makes far more accurate use of the name. ...

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 113 days ago

A man and a woman meet in a pub. It’s no ordinary assignation; he’s a hired killer, and she has a ‘problem’ she’s hoping he can solve. That’s the basic premise of this darkly comic two-hander, where the two people we see on stage are just part of a wider...

Hitman And Her is highly recommended : an engaging and funny tale of a jilted wife trying to arrange a hit on her husband, weaving undertones of homage to Harold Pinter, Samuel Beckett and The Italian Job. What happens if you stray from your comfort zone ? A woman arrives...
