The Drum


Multi-award winning writer Bea Roberts tells a tender and truthful comedy like no other, using projectors, party rings and PowerPoint.

Emails unopened, cup-a-soup undrunk, a secret in the stock room; Emma Barnicott pines for a world beyond her trading estate office. When she meets a man online, Emma must decide if the chance of a fantastic love is worth trading for an imperfect life.

“Completely different and deliciously quirky… this original show proved painfully funny and oddly moving.” The Guardian

“Utterly unique and exceptional in every way, it’s a heart-breaking story of a stunted life, told with theatrical verve and palpable compassion”
★★★★★ The Stage

“Rare and extraordinary: exceptional storytelling that is full of theatrical spirit.”
★★★★★ The List

Nominated for a Total Theatre Award, Infinity Pool is the latest play from the local writer of And Then Come The Nightjars, “intensely funny…a small gem of a play” ★★★★ TheTelegraph “a right little cracker” ★★★★ TheGuardian
