The Retreat

By Sam Bain

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A comedy about getting away from it all - the debut play from the BAFTA Award-winning co-writer and co-creator of Peep Show, Fresh Meat and Four Lions.

Luke left his high-flying City life to discover serenity in the Scottish Highlands, but he can't escape his past. Is Tony, his brother, everything that's wrong with Luke's old life, or is he the only one who can really see into his soul?

Sam Bain's play The Retreat premiered at Park Theatre, London, in 2017, in a production directed by Kathy Burke.

 

‘Do you feel lucky, Monk?’

Press Quotes

'Sam Bain's comedy drama smart-bombs spirituality-lite… filled with good one-liners'

Independent

'Sam Bain's comic genius is evident throughout'

Broadway World

'Bain’s first theatre script has all of the hallmarks of the merciless, close-quarters character comedy his TV work thrives on… jokes fly like machine-gun fire'

Time Out

'A funny, cathartic take-down of middle-class mindfulness'

The Stage

'Few writers can claim to be as zeitgeisty as Sam Bain… [sits] in the great British sit-com tradition of Fawlty Towers, Rising Damp, Porridge and Blackadder'

Telegraph

'Both amusing and biting… some laugh-out-loud lines'

Evening Standard

'Very funny, with an unusually high line-by-line hit rate and some stalls-convulsing gags… Bain's writing is astute on the imperfect, giddily grasping ways we try to solve our modern malaises'
