A comic play about sex and commitment in the 21st century.
Rafe and Pete have hit a rut. After seven-and-a-half blissfully happy years, their lack of sexual experience is driving them apart.
So when they proposition mutual friend Michael to help out with their problems - knowing full well Michael has his own partner Andrew – what seems like a simple solution quickly spirals out of control.
Four Play premiered at Theatre503, London, in February 2016.
'A frank and hilarious take on the complexities of modern day monogamy… an honest, reflective piece'
'Sharp, well-observed... some stand-out comic moments... a thoroughly enjoyable take on contemporary love – and contemporary life'
'A sparkling comedy… lively and refreshing'
'Hilarious and touching'
