Stop - The Play

The Show Might Go On...

Hatch It (who are the former Reduced Shakespeare Company members, John Schwab and Tim Beckmann) are delighted to be presenting the world premiere of David Spicer’s madcap, theatrical comedy.

The first half is set in the rehearsal room, as five neurotic actors, one inexperienced director and an overworked stage manager, battle with the task of mounting what is surely the world’s most terrible play. The second half is the hysterically chaotic first night.

The laughs come thick and fast as the worst night in the theatre becomes the most hilarious play in town.

With Adam Riches (2011 Edinburgh Perrier Comedy Award winner) as The Leading Man, Tosin Cole (Hollyoaks) as The Hollywood Cameo, Hatty Preston (The Royals) as The Leading Lady, Hannah Stokely (Skyfall) as The Perennial Co-star, Charlie Cameron (National Theatre Macbeth) as The Stage Manager, Ben Starr (Survivor) as The Director and James Woolley

**** 'Farce makes a triumphant return to Whitehall... the laughs come thick and fast' 
The Stage

**** 'Simply, it's very very funny.'
londoncitynights

***** 'Hardened theatre critics, visiting actors, VIPs, producers and the like, were crying with laughter...Stop! The Play is a deliriously funny triumph. Not to be missed.' 
Stage Review

***** 'Cleverly blurring the already hazy line between reality and fiction ... fraught with comedy and witty line after line delivered at a pace fit to reduce an audience member to tears from laughter, and pain their stomach from breathlessness like a poison.'
Playstosee

 

The play contains adult language and sexual themes.

The performance includes strobe lighting and a loud gunshot.
