How quickly can you write a TV show? A month? A week? A day? Felix, Phoebe and Alice have 40 minutes. After unsuccessfully pitching a historical drama about the Soviet Gulag, Felix blurts out another idea. This second idea is off-the-cuff… and a little unorthodox. As the clock counts down in real time, this fast-paced comedy about the brutality of the TV industry highlights the humour in stressful situations and the circumstances that can push people to ultimate betrayal.

Saw this fantastic new play last night. Wow! The Fringe at its best!
The excellent cast give a pacy, energetic and punchy performance full of laughs from start to finish. The play explores the chaotic world of tv commissioning and the fine lines between success and career oblivion. There are some pin sharp observations, great flights of fancy, great physical comedy, a short but pertinent audience participation sequence (hilarious!) and a deeply satisfying reveal at the end of the piece. Writer Thomas Davy and the cast truly hit the spot ! If you’re looking for a late evening show full of laughter - this is the one! We loved it! Enjoy!

What an utter joy this piece of new writing is! Wonderfully acted and hilarious to. This piece of absurd comedy coming from new playwright Thomas Davy is completely unique and maintains all the fantastic qualities of the fringe. the commentary on the television industry is very poignant whilst remaining witty and showcases just how difficult and pressurising our industry is! Definitely a must see!

Really enjoyed the premise of the show. A really energetic and fun performance from all involved but our favourite character was Cameron the most important TV executive. We really enjoyed the improved section around creating new animals from the audiences ideas! Fun show overall! Although the timer was making us nervous about missing our train
