Adrian Edmondson stars in a new adaption of William Leith’s darkly comic and touching bestseller.

‘When you’re young your opponent is the future. But when you reach middle age, everything flips, and now you have a new opponent – the Past.’

William wakes up one morning, middle aged and cranky. He’s alone, sleeping on a mattress in his office and bits of him are falling apart.

As his mind wonders from bookshelves, blood pressure and the D day landing, to the death of love and birth of his son, he asks himself: where did it go wrong and is there time to fix it?

Adrian Edmondson is one of Britain’s best loved actors and an icon of alternative theatre. He is best known for The Young Ones, Bottom and The Comic Strip Presents. He has since appeared in numerous TV series including One of Us and War & Peace, and in the West End in Waiting for Godot, The Rocky Horror Show and Neville’s Island.
