Octopus Soup to tour UK in 2019!

Great news, Octopus Soup is on! The comedy, penned with my good mate, Mark Stevenson, opens at the Belgrade theatre Coventry on Feb 2nd where it runs for two weeks, and then tours nationally from Feb 19th! http://belgrade.co.uk/event/octopus-soup

"Seymour Norse is the safest man in Britain. An insurance consultant who wears a belt and braces (and another belt, just to be sure). But his flagging career needs an urgent reboot and tonight might be his last chance…

The CEO of the world’s largest insurance group has, reluctantly, granted him 20 minutes of her precious time to pitch his Big Idea via web-cam from his suburban home office. Unfortunately, it is also the night Seymour’s house has been targeted by a bungling burglar with bad knees.
 
With Seymour’s highly unstable actress wife awaiting news on a star TV role, the burglar’s psychopathic crime boss around the corner, a share of a £30 billion insurance market at stake and a moody octopus stuck in a car boot, what could possibly go wrong?"
 
Octopus Soup! is the exciting new comedy with an all-star cast premiering at the Belgrade prior to a major national tour.
 
From writing duo Jack Milner and Mark Stevenson and director Joe Harmston, this is a classic British farce of desperate characters in extraordinary situations and an octopus. A fiendishly clever plot combines with sparkling contemporary dialogue to create a comedy for everyone - however many legs you have.
