Q&A Session following performance on Thursday 5 September
“The human race depends upon us, the makers of theatre, for its very survival. And without the freedom to be wrong in the pursuit of the truth, then we’re no better than actual engineers. We’re no better than theatre critics”
A searing comedy on show business post-#MeToo that brilliantly captures the confusion of ‘woke’ men trying to mansplain their positions of power.
A talented young female writer, an A-list actor and an ambitious West End director meet to discuss the most important new play of the decade – if they can only agree on what it’s about! Fragile egos, the fault lines of modern politics and the all-pervasive power of Hollywood threatens to derail the whole project.
“Even the first lines of this outrageous and uproarious new play at the Fringe arrive with the vroom vroom of a Ferrari.” – ★★★★★ The Times (UK)
“A satire as timely as it is riotous.” – ★★★★★ The Guardian
