The Breakfast Cat Theatre Company will be previewing their three “plays in pubs” at The Ship on the High Street in central Croydon on Tuesday September 24 from 7.30pm, before touring them down to the south coast for Havant Literary Festival. This exclusive preview will be £2 on the door, an absolute bargain to see three hilarious short plays.
The three very different plays are…
By Croydon playwright Ben Parker, this comedy about three men in a pub attracted great audiences when recently performed. Comments included: “Probably one of the best short plays that I have ever seen.” With a (mostly) brand new cast, take a second look at this cult Croydon classic.
By Ellie Dawes. As anyone who’s ever seen a nature show will appreciate: wasps are bad-ass. They do horrible things, screw over other species and generally like making a nuisance of themselves. They also talk in rhyme and say the F-word occasionally. Find out what happens when four of the baddest wasps from around the world come to Britain for a pint and meet the common English wasp. A slice of surreal in the middle of your play sandwich.
Pub Quiz of the sexes
By Mark Wakeman. When recently divorced Brian and best friend Chris meet recently cheated-on Louise and her best friend Caroline, the battle of the sexes is taken to a whole new level… a sort of papery, multiple-choice level, the results of which none of them were quite expecting. A comedy with the answers to life, love and bar snacks. Beware! This play contains nuts.
A spokesperson for the company said of the latest productions, “Holding this event at The Ship is a great way for us to say thank you to everyone in the pub for their brilliant and unwavering support of our theatrical exploits.
“So please do come, and make sure you drink lots. We guarantee that the more you drink, the funnier the plays will be.”
