Spring/Summer Theatre 2019
Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
Award-winning Archie Maddocks presents an hour of biting, provocative, unflinchingly funny comedy where he explores his deepest and darkest thoughts, exposes his flaws and interrogates his personal connection to Grenfell Tower.
Fresh from a stint in the BBC Writersroom, having previously toured South Africa and Europe, this ‘ uper cool, super smart storyteller’ (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard) hilariously explores life, love and loss with a candid authenticity, marking him out as a ‘real highlight’ (BBC Introducing).
'A reflective and witty show.'
'While he does sail close to the wind at times, such moments pay off in the best possible fashion...he has both his heart and his mind in the right place.'
'it is clear that Archie Maddocks has found his calling in comedy… a brilliant job balancing light silly humour with thought-provoking, refreshing and subversive social discussion.'
'Matchstick is a stellar example of stand-up comedy.'
