THE RISE AND INEVITABLE FALL OF LUCAS PETIT

"A witty, whip-smart and up to the minute satire on the roots of fanaticism... McGregor and co have created a little piece of theatrical dynamite." - The Herald

There’s only one remarkable thing about Lucas Petit, and that is how unremarkable he is.The most exciting thing in his life is his weekly trip to the B&Q cafe - and that's just the way he likes it. But, one day, a chance encounter with a tramp that may or not be God throws his whole world into disarray as he is cast headfirst into the murky world of organised crime and disorganised religion.

With a cast of dozens (played by 3 actors) this is a fast and furious new comedy with music from the team behind "Love 2.0"

Tickets: £10 full (£8 concession)
