    This is a one-night-only show, because you try running the hilarious Whitecotton for two nights, someone's gonna send in the National Guard. Still, Pat Dean, the Velv's manager, he can't help pushing that fucking envelope, can he? No, he can't – which is why he's got Duncan Carson opening. Maximum impact here tonight.

    "Though the man telling the jokes is sitting down (he's in a wheelchair), dying is a stand-up routine in this glowingly dark, profoundly moving new play by Will Eno,” states The New York Times. From the playwright of Thom Pain (based on nothing) comes this welcome work of theatre, embodied here by Ken Webster and Rebecca Robinson for Hyde Park Theatre, and so you know that's already like five good reasons to attend. And here's our full review of the show.
