Parlour Song

By Jez Butterworth
Directed by Danny Swanson
22nd – 25th October 2022 at 8:00pm
Matinee on October 23rd at 2:30pm

A hilarious but sinister suburban showdown in darkest Hertfordshire.

Blissfully funny… combines the comic, the erotic and the downright disconcerting with superb panache.
Telegraph

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books

Demolition expert Ned lives in a nice new house on a nice new estate on the edge of the English countryside. He loves his job, he loves barbecues, he loves car boot sales. Outwardly his life is entirely unremarkable. Not unlike his friend and neighbour Dale.

So why has he not slept a wink in six months? Why is he so terrified of his attractive wife Joy? And why is it every time he leaves on business, something else goes missing from his home?

Parlour Song is a black, hilarious exploration of deceit, paranoia and murderous desire, as the spirit of the Blues lands in leafy suburbia.
