13 February – 9 March

A South African gun runner turned Buddhist monk.

A gullible startup millionaire.

His radical feminist ex wife.

Their aid worker daughter.

The young British Muslim she met in Syria.

An ethical Serbian hitman.

And an unstable Brazilian cleaner.

Modern Britain. Moral chaos. Total nightmare.

Playwright Patrick Marmion says, ‘I wanted to write a comedy about the head-spinning madness and recrimination of life in modern Britain. I thought Molière might help so I eviscerated him and threw in a supernatural con man inspired Euripides’s Dionysus. Keith? is what emerged. I hope it goes some way to capturing the way we’re all walking on eggshells, terrified of giving offence, suspicious of anyone who crosses our path and panic stricken ourselves lest we be exposed for some unknown indiscretion or thought crime. Luckily life isn’t nearly as bad as we’re supposed to think it is.’
