This fairy comes round your house.
You, she says, are in luck.
Ask for anything you want. Anything in the world and I’ll give it to you. But whatever you ask for, your neighbour gets the same thing, but double.
Great. You say. Fine.
Cut out one of my eyes.

A celebration of envy, a joyous call for everyone we’ve ever wanted to be and everything we’ve ever wanted to own. A place to whoop at our own fragility and delight against our better nature. A toast to our competitive spirits and a rumbling dance for the uglygutter-tramping parts of our souls. A show that seeks to prove that envy makes us better. That politicians are right: that its spirit runs through our hearts, lymph systems and bowels and it’s glorious and we wouldn't want it any other way.

Back in London for two more shows.

“Frequently funny and candid show about the nature of envy”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Entertainingly nasty.. laced with song, arson and a large dose of envy... Very funny... and streaked with regret... Perceptive.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)
