So I decided to dispose of the body myself.  I chopped him up with a kitchen knife and I thought about burying him in the back garden but I couldn’t be bothered with all that digging so I just threw him in the bin.  

Dermot and Janet are about to have a one night stand. Before sealing the deal, though, Dermot must:
a)         Check she agrees that Tony Blair's a war criminal.
b)         Establish whether she killed her ex-husband
c)         Reluctantly accept she does not realise he's famous.

Part of the Orange Tree's Directors' Festival of plays directed by students from the first year of the Orange Tree Theatre and St Mary’s University’s MA in Theatre Directing.

Soho Theatre [Fringe,Off West End]

“A raunchy little romcom... packing explosives in its pants... Dark zingers fly back and forth... adding real comic crackle. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Hugely entertaining, wincingly sharp two-hander,”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage)

“Gathers into a meditation on how attraction can supersede differences... Sharp dialogue and two strong performances.”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“There are a lot of gear changes for director Max Elton to handle in just one hour, but he steers a confident path through them.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Short, sharp... 20 minutes or so of perfect, pitch-black comedy... The ending feels like a cop-out.”

Claire Allfree (Telegraph)

“Wicked, absurdist... Humorous bickering... More nuance would be welcome... Lacks the dramatic thrust to drive its point home.”
