A Party For My Uncle Brian


About

Dear friend, relative, acquaintance, good Samaritan, passer-by, innocent bystander, reluctant colleague, etc. etc.

I (Joe) am throwing a birthday party for my Uncle Brian (my best friend who deserves the world).

There will be cake and squash and I've hired Barry Manilow.

Please turn up.

Love, Joe.

A Party for My Uncle Brian is the newest play from jarfrog.

Their third production as a company, this piece of new writing utilises comedy and drama to explore the loneliness epidemic and the subsequent cravings for attention, validation and companionship that are produced by a seemingly isolated world.

Directed by Alfie Dale, this one man show follows Joe (George Bennett) as he attempts to throw the best birthday party anyone has ever had for his illusive Uncle Brian. Will it be a success? Will anyone turn up? Where is Uncle Brian?

Please arrive shortly before 7pm. Latecomers unfortunately cannot be admitted.

Please note, there are no toilet or drinking facilities at the venue. Ticket holders have access to the facilities at The Great Northern Railway Tavern, which is a minute walk away.

Directed by Alfie Dale

Written and performed by George Bennett

Designed by Fiona Wagstaff

Produced by jarfrog

With additional thanks to Lucien Chance & Louise Bennett
