“Blissfully funny new play… combines the comic, the erotic and the downright disconcerting with superb panache” – Daily Telegraph
Lust and longing in leafy suburbia.
Demolition expert Ned lives in a nice new house on a nice new estate on the edge of the English countryside. He loves his job, barbecues, car boot sales. Outwardly his life is entirely unremarkable. Not unlike his friend and neighbour Dale.
So why has he not slept a wink in six months? Why is he so terrified of his attractive wife Joy? And why is it every time he leaves on business, something else goes missing from his home?
Parlour Song, with its bluesy roots, is a hilarious exploration of deceit, paranoia and murderous desire. A superb new play from the award-winning author of Mojo, The Night Heron and The Winterling.
Starring: Christopher Brougham, Heather O'Carroll, Gavin Rutherford
“The sharpest, funniest piece (Jez Butterworth) has written since his precocious debut… I haven’t laughed as much in ages” – The Times
