Help Get Theatre, Apparently's "Slightly Too Dark" Show to the Fringe!

I Keep a Woman in My Flat Chained to a Radiator

Socially-awkward Stephen is a twenty something we can all relate to. He's hopelessly lonely, he hates his job and he keeps a woman shackled to his plumbing. But tonight is different. Tonight Stephen is preparing for a hot date with help of the female manacled to his water main. They discuss everything from Sandra Bullock to white privilege and the sex appeal of investment bankers, but never mention the elephant in the room. A hilarious, fast paced, black comedy about a kidnapper and his victim.

"This piece of theatre holds nothing back, almost yelling at social etiquette through its dark jokes by saying WHY THE HELL NOT?" 8/10 - Impact

"Really smart, whimsical and bawdy dark humour... excellently executed"  ★★★★ - Her Campus

A Brief History of Events

The company was founded in 2015 by two men of great mirth, Lord Alex Well-King of Surrey (Writer/Actor) and Sir Adam Willis of Essex (Writer/Director). After cohabiting for two years and numerous beers they decided to enter into business together.

They met two wonderful women along the way.

Monica Forero (Actor); ferocious as a coot and Emma Kendall (Producer); good for quotas.

An unstoppable team, destined to take the Fringe by storm.

Company Ethics

We use comedy to tackle serious and thought-provoking issues in a way that doesn't beat the audience across the head. We believe that being serious and being solemn are two different things and this allows us to use silliness as a medium to discuss difficult topics.

Your input to the project is so,so crucial. You are like the megaphone that we use to project our booming voice from, allowing us to be heard by far more people. To be louder, to be bigger and to make a far greater positive social effect than we could do without your help.
