Synopsis
Out in the ‘real world’ the Prime Minister and his cabinet have been assassinated and England’s most treasured writers are being murdered one by one! Back in the cosy bubble of university life, a bachelor don anguishes over sex, marriage, anagrams, and the meaning of life. Did someone suggest academics were ‘out of touch’?
CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON’S most celebrated hit play returns to the West End. SIMON CALLOW’s new production stars: MATT BERRY (The IT Crowd, Toast of London), SIMON BIRD (The Inbetweeners, Friday Night Dinner), LILY COLE (Ab Fab The Movie), CHARLOTTE RITCHIE (Call the Midwife ) and TOM ROSENTHAL (Friday Night Dinner).

A smart college comedy - I love the play
The Guardian
Simon Bird is hilarious as he leads a stellar comic cast

Simon Bird and Lily Cole are a treat in this intellectually witty, emotionally acute tragi-comedy
