Description

In the disabled toilet in Tesco we meet Billy and Neil. Wearing combats and carrying enough explosives to blow the place sky high, they examine life and attempt to decide whether extreme violence is the only way to be heard. A darkly comic exploration of life in abandoned Tory Britain. With a title inspired by Kurt Cobain's suicide note, this is an unsettling and very, very dark comedy that explores how two seemingly ordinary people can be pushed to shocking extremes without even realising it.

Join two fantastic actors on an amazing rollercoaster of emotions as the power dynamics change in this piece about forgotten sections of young society. The claustrophobia of the the setting in a disabled toilet and the actual venue just adds to the effect. Don't dither just see it if you can.

Fantastic show with captivating performances from both actors. Brilliantly written and perfectly executed. Loved this show. If you can get in to see it in these last days of Fringe, you absolutely have to.

Mesmerising performances from both actors.
The best show I’ve seen in the three years I’ve been coming to the Fringe.
5* doesn’t do it justice. A+

The best play at the Fringe this year. A beautiful piece which is perfectly executed by two incredible performers. This takes you on an emotional rollercoaster and is the best hour I’ve spent at the festival. If you do anything this month, go and see this show!

The Wee Review (5/5 stars) 62 days ago

Hidden away in Tesco’s disabled toilet, two young men are preparing for war. As the play begins, they pull on combat fatigues; there are guns in the wash-hand basin, and an ominously bulky backpack on the floor. Be in no doubt, these are domestic terrorists, ready to die in a...

Everything Theatre (4/5 stars) 66 days ago

"Letter To Boddah is a clever and funny piece of writing, taking a rather ridiculous idea to an equally crazy conclusion. Add in the fine acting of its two cast members, it’s a play that has enough about it to have a bigger life after Edinburgh is over."
