I just don’t know if I’m ever happy. Like, really truly happy. Even if you sent me up to space, by Day Four I’d be worrying if I had enough stuff on my Kindle…

In a faded country house hotel, a group of medical reps attend an office away day. Potential office romances aside, it’s strictly business-as-usual: endless team-building exercises, an over-ambitious boss and the wrong sort of biscuits.

But as the day wears on, the reps have more questions than answers: Does any of their work make a difference? What exactly are they selling? And who’s getting promoted to the Woking office? Little do they know that change is swiftly coming and they’re asking all the wrong questions…

In rep, check site for dates.

“Structurally playful... Hilarious and horrific... As Waldron's play gets darker and darker, so does his comedy.”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage, What's On Stage)

“Brilliantly taut black comedy with a fantastic performance from Becci Gemmell.”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“Fascinating... A work in two halves. The first, extremely funny... the second, chilling... Expert direction... accomplished cast”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“Far more effective when it seduces us with laughter than when it socks us between the eyes... [All] perform with great aplomb.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“A classic bait-and-switch... Stokes’s direction works the psychological gear-change adroitly by not working it explicitly.”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)
