Two girls, Abigail and Frances, fixate about sexual adventures – real or imagined – and an abundance of yoga. However their cosy house-share in Peckham is suddenly disrupted by their new lodger, Gary, an eccentric young man with a desire for ketchup filled sandwiches and an unusual fetish with a large petrol-driven chainsaw. He proves to be more than a handful, but will the noise pollution be the last straw?
This zany, madcap 90’s nostalgic comedy marks its first London revival since its premiere at the Etcetera Theatre in 1994 and plays a limited three week run at the Tabard Theatre.
