Production shot

Father-to-be Vincent and his partner Anna are invited to dinner by his sister Elizabeth and her husband, Peter. They are joined by childhood friend Carl for a mature and sophisticated gathering.

A breathtakingly funny 90 minutes
- Sunday Times
Utterly hilarious
- Broadway World

The meal is lovingly prepared, and wine carefully selected. The friends are prepared for the usual humorous exchanges they've come to expect.

But tonight, a startling revelation about the name chosen for Vincent and Anna’s expected child becomes the catalyst for a destructive argument which spirals hysterically out of control. Tonight no one is holding back! Egos, childish resentment and unspoken feelings are relentlessly and hilariously exposed for the first time.

This comic masterpiece is adapted by British theatre director, writer and translator Jeremy Sams from award-winning French film and stage sensation Le Prénom, this international smash hit has played over 30 countries and is now on its first ever UK tour.

Access

The Alexandra was built in 1901 by William Coutts and was originally called the Lyceum. The theatre is home to first class entertainment and has welcomed productions such as Doctor Dolittle, starring Phillip Schofield and the sell-out version of Peter Pan with Joe Pasquale. This stunning theatre was recently relaunched as The Alexandra following a £650,000 refurbishment.
