Description

Are you saving the world? If you're reading this, you're a win-winner. A tragi-comedy about a philanthropist-entrepreneur who thinks he's saving the world, but discovers that maybe he's making it worse. Follow the spectacularly clueless David Hughes as he meets the recipient of his Foundation's kindness – an Unmeetable – and is confronted with the reality that they are not so different after all. Start saving the world, one fundraising gala at a time, at www.unmeetables.com.

Stumbled across Damien’s show and was frankly blown away! Although initially hard to follow, the subject matter soon became apparent and the message really hit home. If you get a chance, definitely see this show, so cleverly written and so powerful!

Thought provoking entertainment. A unique angle to a very real problem. Heartrending and really beautiful show. I was enthralled from the beginning - time just flew by.

Totally agree with all the other reviewers - this is a great show - lots of food for thought. We too had a chance to chat with Damian after watching his show - we wanted to check if he was as angry and lonely as the sad character in his writing .................(he's not!). Highly recommended - written from the heart and Damian totally holds the space - really the spirit of the Fringe. Go

Superb show, funny and moving with excellent acting from Damien and a deeply resonant character. Congratulated Damien after the show, what a lovely, humble bloke! Go see it!

A very good performance which I found quite moving. The acting was excellent and I hope it gets its deserved recognition.

Unmeetables clearly leaves an effect on its audience by the end. As we filter out so many people stop to say not “well done”, but rather “thank you”, because the message of this play is important, I doubt anyone in the audience today would disagree.
