The Summer House
£ 8 -12
The Summer House tells the story of how Neil, an awkward thirty-something male, drags two other thirty-something males, Will and Matthew, on a stag weekend to his summer house in the remote Icelandic countryside.
As they settle in to their surroundings, they realise that everything isn't quite as it seems. The freezing white expanse is having a strange effect on them, and it could be the drink but is that a Norse God that they see in the distance? A Viking? A raven? Or simply a ghost?
A hilarious three-hander, that brings together award-winning comedians and performers Will Adamsdale, Matthew Steer and Neil Haigh for the first time, this is a play about men and all their crap, about myths and what they're for and about the weather and how it blows all the other stuff away anyway.
