This smash-hit Camden Fringe show is inspired by the writer’s ridiculous lockdown diaries – and it’s the best way to laugh away the trauma of the past 18 months. Joe’s stuck in a tiny flat trying to make sense of the pandemic. One day, whilst watching a government briefing on TV, he decides to answer back. This sets off a surreal conversation with… Boris? Or maybe it’s his friend on Facebook? Or… maybe it’s his fridge. Brought to you by NewsRevue director, Edwina Strobl, and long-term NewsRevue writer Mark Daniels, this Offie-nominated dark satirical comedy offers a unique, yet relatable take on the British response to the pandemic. The play’s two actors (Kathryn Haywood and NewsRevue star Edward Bartram) take you on a high-energy farcical journey from panic buying to Jackie Weaver, with an unhealthy dose of Tory British gusto thrown in. This is absurd laugh-out-loud comedy at its best. You simply have to see it.
