Monday 11th April, 7.30pm – Experience live theatre at The Borzoi Bookshop!

Ticket numbers very limited!  £6 each - Click here to buy your ticket.



A comedy play written by and starring Paul Richards.

A groundbreaking one-man piece of comedic theatre that asks a simple question: Is it possible to please everyone, all of the time? And at what cost to your family and health? In this fast and frenetic comedy, award-winning writer/performer Paul Richards explores our need to please, and why it’s sometimes healthy to, every now and then, just sit in a shed and play Subbuteo by yourself, eating biscuits and listen to Meat Loaf.

“Richards seems to have comic energy to burn…he makes Lee Evans seem narcoleptic by comparison. The result is mostly laugh-out-loud, but punctuated with sorrow. Ingeniously written and powerfully performed. “ – The Swindonian
