Time to stray…

People! The time has come! After a successful Zequs crowdfunding campaign, we go on in London at the end of the month. Straying in Seattle is coming to town! Get your TICKETS here.

Straying in Seattle is a pair of comedies about love, lies, and getting laid – Seattle-style.

Monogamish – Helena’s getting hitched. Charles is doing it differently. And after seven years with Roger, Toby’s got marriage on his mind. When Washington State gives the thumbs up to same sex marriage, Roger gets ready to pop the question… But what exactly does he want to ask?

How Will I Know? – As Seattle celebrates Halloween, three housemates have bigger things to be afraid of. Mark would do anything to keep his Mexican boyfriend in the country, but marriage isn’t on the cards yet. When his best friend Brooke offers a helping hand, it seems the trio has hatched the perfect plan. But who are they really trying to fool?

Tuesday to Saturday at 7.45pm, Sunday at 6pm

XY in London and Edinburgh!

XYThis Tuesday is the Edinburgh Preview for my short play that’ a part of Papercut Theatre’s XY. If you’re not going up to Edinburgh, and are in London, it’ll be your last chance to see it. It’s on at Theatre503 in Battersea. Here’s the FB event.

My short is called “Hopelessly devoted to you“. It features wheelchair sex and skydiving. That’s my main marketing pitch and I’m sticking to it. I really like this darkly comic little play and what the director and cast have done with it, so I hope folks get to see it.

It premiered last December at Theatre503 and will be on at the Pleasance Courtyard as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe from 31 July to 4 Aug as part of the rotating set of plays that will make up XY.


XY – Edinburgh Preview

Our writers were given a simple job. Write a short play without specifying gender for any of the characters. One play. No gender. Endless possibilities.

Ahead of their residency at the Pleasance Courtyard at this summer’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Papercut Theatre present a selection of plays from their acclaimed short play festival.
