New British plays

Three new, thematically very different works, by young promising British playwrights have just become a part of our catalogue:


A mad comedy about keeping the flame alive
By Joe Hampson
1 F / 2 M
Black comedy
English original text

Hats-shopaholic Frank has been married to Susan for 25 years. Their relationship is as good as dead and she has now given him a pet rabbit as an attempt to ‘reintroduce love’ into his life. He hates the furry bastard and as the play opens he turns to hitman Kevin to make him kill it. Suddenly, Susan arrives.

A funny (and MAD!!) black comedy about how to keep the flame alive in a long-term relationship. Surreal and absurd with a plot twisting and turning throughout the play.



★★★★★ ‘If you’re looking for a near-perfect play off the West End, here it is… I’d see it again tomorrow’ – LondonTheatre1

★★★★★ ‘One of the funniest and freshest plays you’ll see all year’ – Everything Theatre

★★★★ ‘Original, gutsy and hysterically funny, Joe Hampson’s Rabbits lifts the lid on a normal couple’s relationship to reveal how quirky life can be.’ – Stage Review

New topics onstage
By Sarah Page

English original text

Jack, a 25-year-old man with a learning disability, lives at home, cared for by his devoted parents. Like most men in their twenties, he has needs – his mates at the rugby club talk about nothing but getting laid. Desperate for their son to not feel left out, his parents decide to bring in a professional. But the woman they hire has a far more profound impact on the whole family than they could ever have imagined.



★★★★ “Pensive but piercingly insightful character piece examines challenging themes of sex and disability” – The Stage

★★★★ “An irresistible new play about sex and materialism from Sarah Page” – WhatsOnStage

★★★★ “The play’s diplomacy and sensitive handling of the subject matter is nothing short of a triumph. So too is Page’s incorporation of comedy into the most unlikely scenarios. However, Punts most striking achievement is its dexterous exploration of topics from multiple perspectives.” – PopCultureBeast

★★★★ “An incisive, confidently written and bold piece of drama” – London City Nights
