Spring/Summer Theatre 2019
Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
Steve Bugeja was voted most likely to be forgotten at school (the reunion was in February, apparently).
To prove his former classmates wrong, he hits the road for his third and largest UK tour to date with Almost, following three critically-acclaimed shows and direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Almost sees Steve trapped on a 13-hour flight when he receives a text that flips his entire world upside down, leading him to contemplate issues of great importance. Is finding the one possible? Can we trust the pharmaceutical industry? And why are Japanese toilets so much better than ours?
Since winning the BBC New Comedy Award, Steve has appeared on shows including Love Island: Aftersun (ITV2), Russell Howard’s Good News (Comedy Central) and Top Tens (BBC3). Making a name for himself internationally, Steve has been invited to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival twice, appearing on ABCTV’s Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow and twice on Comedy Up Late. Also a prolific writer, Steve was on the writing team for The Russell Howard Hour and has contributed material for shows including Mock the Week and The Now Show.
'A fine piece of storytelling.'
'a charming, likeable stand-up with a set packed with gags.'
'Confidently-presented, accessible, anecdotal standup.'
