A ‘hysterical laugh-out-loud’ musical comedy so good, it must be sinful.

The year is 1894. You are cordially invited to attend a lecture on the subject of time travel. Your very presence will serve as a demonstration of its feasibility. What could possibly go wrong?
From CtrlAltRepeat, the award-winning online theatre pioneers behind VIPER SQUAD and SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE SYMMETRIC MAILSHOT, comes an original adventure that catapults you in to the London of years gone by. Heavily influenced by the work of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, and doused in the company’s trademark sense of fun, THE TEMPORAL SOCIETY pushes the boundaries of what is possible over Zoom.
Unleash the Llama & Zoe Weldon / King’s Head Theatre / Online / 15 April – 5 May / https://bit.ly/JEWish-tickets
Play / Comedy / New Writing / LGBTQ themes
Unleash the Llama are proud to present the long awaited return of the ★★★★★ sell-out “hilarious”, Jew…ish, filmed in high definition by the award-winning Shoot Media as part of King’s Head Theatre’s digital on demand season, Plays On Film.
The twisted millennial romcom that absolutely no-one asked for, Jew…ish struck a resounding chord with audiences in smash-hit live runs in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe and was nominated for an Offies OffComm award. TJ and Max are in love; with polyamory, substance-abuse on the Portobello Road and sexually-charged debates about Israel-Palestine. Occasionally even with each other. There’s just one thing: Max is Jewish. TJ isn’t. Watch as these lovers navigate the cultural divide – amid death, pegging, and two millennia of inherited trauma – in this laugh-out-loud two-hander which asks the ultimate question: is it ever OK to get back with your ex?
When you book, you can watch on-demand until 5 May. The ticketing site can be confusing…
The Northern Comedy Theatre / 19 – 26 April at 8pm each night / Online / https://northerncomedytheatre.com/perfect
Play / Comedy / New Writing
Five Actors play 25 different characters in this Outstandingly Brilliant Excellent PERFECT comedy by David Spicer. When a harassed Junior Education Minister tries to make a joke at a press conference, he not only nearly brings about the fall of his Government, he unwittingly starts a chain of events that leads to the unravelling of his life, a range of offensive jelly moulds and a dead Peruvian Llama. Taking aim at the current madness that seems to have taken grip of the country (but managing to mention ‘Brexit’ only once in passing and ‘COVID’ not at all), PERFECT is a hilarious gallop through the weird and not-very-wonderful worlds of politics and celebrity culture.
