Simon Hench is a selfish man of taste and discretion, who keeps himself at a graceful distance from the messy distractions of his family and friends. He has a problem, though. Well, several actually. As he settles down for an indulgent Saturday morning on his own, his comfortable home is invaded by a series of unwelcome visitors. Leading a stellar cast, Richard E. Grant (‘Excellent’ - The Guardian) plays the man whose life finally catches up with him in Simon Gray''s wickedly sharp, award-winning comedy.
Richard E. Grant has starred in over 60 films since his iconic performance in the 1987 cult classic Withnail and I including The Player, Jack and Sarah, Gosford Park and Bright Young Things.
Anthony Head (‘Magnificent’ - Daily Mail) star of US cult TV sensation Buffy the Vampire Slayer and more recently the Prime Minister in BBC''s Little Britain also stars.
Joining Richard and Anthony are David Bamber best remembered for his outstanding portrayal of ''Mr Collins'' in the BBC''s Pride and Prejudice and Peter Wight, whose films include Mike Leigh''s Secrets and Lies and the Oscar nominated Vera Drake. Amanda Drew, Liam Garrigan and Amanda Ryan also star.
