The Unfriend – West End
Prepare to experience a side-splittingly hilarious theatre production that has captured the hearts of audiences around England. The Unfriend, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Mark Gatiss (the award-winning team behind BBC’s Sherlock), is now coming to London for an exclusive limited engagement at the Criterion Theatre! Experience this dark comedy with its star cast featuring Reece Shearsmith (Inside No. 9), Amanda Abbington (Sherlock) and Frances Barber(Silk). Feel what happens when Peter and Debbie make friends on holiday with Elsa – a wild Trump enthusiast from Denver who may be less than ‘woke’ but still offers them something truly wonderful in her own unique way. Don’t miss your chance to check it out before they part ways; after all, no one ever really stays in touch, do they?
