‘Complex, hilarious and fascinating.’
★★★★ Scotsman

A dark new comedy by David Ireland

‘Everywhere in the world where there’s a war about religion, two people from each side should have sex. That would bring world peace. We should literally make love and not war’

Dermot and Janet are about to have a one night stand. Before sealing the deal, though, Dermot must:
a) Check she agrees that Tony Blair’s a war criminal.
b) Establish whether she killed her ex-husband
c) Find out why she’s dressed as a giant mouse

By the end of the night, no taboo is left untouched. An outrageous and revealing roller-coaster of a comedy from award winning writer David Ireland following his critically-acclaimed Cyprus Avenue (Royal Court Theatre).

Returning to Soho Theatre following Vicky Jones’ The One, Rufus Wright performs alongside Elinor Lawless (King Charles III- Almeida)

Directed by Max Elton

This production originated in a collaboration between the Orange Tree Theatre and St Mary’s University

Running Time: Approx 60mins
