A hotel room, a long-standing friendship and a hair-raising plan! 

BAFTA and Golden Globe award-winning Stephen Merchant (The Office, Extras, Hello Ladies) stars with critically acclaimed actor Steffan Rhodri (Gavin & Stacey, Harry Potter, Posh) in this sharply written and darkly comic play from Richard Bean, writer of the smash hit, One Man, Two Guvnors.

Ted (Stephen Merchant) has a master plan to revolutionise the world – and with help from his best friend Morrie (Steffan Rhodri) and his trusty video camera, it may just go global!

But Morrie begins to suspect that Ted’s in trouble as unpaid bills and cryptic phone calls start to mount; and as the world closes in on their hotel room in this poignant and touching comedy, there is only one way out…

Stephen Merchant (Ted)
BAFTA, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Stephen Merchant began his career as a stand-up comedian, before becoming co-writer, co-director and performer in the hit series The Office.

Following the success of The Office, further collaborations with Ricky Gervais include Stephen as a co-writer, co-director, and co-star of the acclaimed Extras for BBC and HBO, and co-host of The Ricky Gervais Show in its radio, podcast, audiobook, and television show forms. The Ricky Gervais Show in radio form won a bronze Sony Award.

He has since gone on to write and star in a number of film and television projects that include: An Idiot Abroad (Sky), Life's Too Short (BBC), I Give it a Year (Working Title Films), Hall Pass (Warner Bros.), Hot Fuzz (Big Talk), Modern Family (20th Century Fox Television/ABC).

Most recently he has created, written and starred in his own series for HBO, Hello Ladies  including HBO special Hello Ladies – The Movie released in 2014.

Lesley Viet-Jacobsen30th August

Stephen Merchant had flashes of comedy genius but overall the play was not as compelling as I had hoped. But, given that the the main themes were poignancy and powerlessness, the fact that the play's run had been cut short (and last night was ... the last night), it was a perfect example of life imitating art. Would love to see Stephen in more productions, though.

Sinead Champion30th August

Left at the interval was a shame to see such a big star be wasted on a poorly written play. Half the audience were asleep before the interval.

Alexandra Harber29th August

A decent play. Both solid performances but something seemed lacking. Merchant, who is a fine comic actor was less convincing as a vulnerable character. Worth seeing, excellent set and venue.

Chris Fullbrook27th August

Really good show - made me laugh out loud a few times. Good acting from Merchant and Rhodri

Sam Aiton27th August

Very good play, excellent, laughed a lot and very emotional towards the end

Robert Minter26th August

Steven Merchant's range is too limited to sustain interest over a full length piece like this. He uses essentially one tone of voice throughout. The relationship between the two main characters was not particularly believable. Disappointing.

Lorna Bowden25th August

Very funny storyline, acted well.

Neil Wynn25th August

Enjoyable evening - nice theatre. The acting was good, but the play is a little weak. Not quite a comedy, not quite anything else. It entertained at a certain level, but did not really stir the emotions. Merchant is fine - he is quite convincing as someone who has lost his marbles!

Helen Blissett24th August

It was a play of two halves. With the second part being by far the strongest. Funny, sad, excellent!

Jo Davies21st August

Given he tickets were only £19 each I enjoyed it for what it was worth. It's laugh out load funny in certain places, definitely very British humour and keeps interest throughout. Would I have paid any more to see it? No..... But a good night out for the price.

jennifer stone20th August

Dark, funny and touching with a great surprise ending. We loved it

Adam Cattell20th August

Bit slow going in parts but some funny moments particularly in the second half.
