Synopsis
A biting ‘bourgeois comedy’ and a fiendishly clever inversion of Moliere’s ‘The Misanthrope’. 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’?
This exciting ensemble cast includes BAFTA award winning writer, actor and musician Matt Berry (The IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh), Simon Bird (star of The Inbetweeners and Friday Night Dinner), model and actress Lily Cole, Charlotte Ritchie (Fresh Meat, Call the Midwife) and Tom Rosenthal (Friday Night Dinner).
