Look at all those couples. Which one will leave. Which one will run. Which one is cheating on the other. Which one will die first. Him. Him. Her. Him.
Ross & Rachel tells the mind-bending, heart-breaking story of what happens when a couple that was always meant to be together, gets together. And stays together.
In this disquieting duologue for one performer, Olivier-nominee and Critics Circle Most Promising Playwright winner James Fritz (Four Minutes, Twelve Seconds, Hampstead Theatre/West End) takes an unflinching look at the myths of modern love.
By Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet
The Castle Builder is an emotional and hard rocking journey into the hearts and souls that exist on the outer limits of creativity and building regulations.
Kid Carpet and Vic Llewellyn take you on a musical, magical, moving and comic journey through the minds of some of our planet’s most eccentric and creative individuals. A smash hit success at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.
