'I should have kept my mouth shut, I should have said nothing.'

Eddie’s a handyman, Doreen keeps a clean house, John’s got a new hat and Paul’s back from college — but the Jacksons are living under siege. Sudden violence blows open their lives in the latest darkly comic play from Simon Bent, whose other acclaimed work includes Sugar Sugar, Bad Company and Goldhawk Road.

'It's not safe, the world is not a safe place. Have some more chicken.'

A pensioner has his council house redecorated by two self-employed chancers. But there are worse crimes than benefit fraud. A richly comic study of politics and wall-papering.

Review
This is disconcerting, constantly entertaining drama, full of good jokes, edgy dialogue and dramatic surprises. - The Daily Telegraph

Elling

Simon Bent
 

Based on the novel by Ingvar Ambjørnsen, in an original stage adaptation by Axel Hellstenius in collaboration with Peter Naess, in a new version by Simon Bent.


Mummy's boy Elling and his roomate, the uncouth reluctant Kjell Bjarne, are the Odd Couple of Oslo: a pair of confused souls taking their first steps in the outside world after years of isolated, institutional life. Given a flat in the city by social services, they must re-assimilate themselves into society or face a return to the asylum. So it’s simply a question of convincing their social worker that they really are 'normal'—even if it does feel safer sleeping in the wardrobe...

Review
Elling is one of those rare, precious pieces of spoken-word drama that persuades even sour old cynics like me to go home riding high on a spirit of joie de vivre. There is no better theatrical tonic in town. Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard
