“A fantastic production,” “achingly precise,” “Quick witted and fun” – There’s much more than spin to these reviews of new comedy Cuttings, set in the world of PR. The critics loved it. Take a look at our collected reviews, then book your tickets!
Ollie George Clark’s play, which was shortlisted for the Liverpool Hope Comedy Playwriting Prize, runs until 22 June 2019 at The Hope Theatre.
YouTuber turned actor Arthur Moses wins an Olivier Award, and moments later goes on to drunkenly deliver the most offensive, outrageous and profanity laden speech in the ceremony’s history. His publicists Gracelyn, Ruchi and Danica have quite a morning ahead of them.
They’ll need to apologise on his behalf all whilst fielding calls, defusing social media, stamping out print, handling the talent, licking SOLT’s wounds and if Arthur could stop posting on Instagram for a second that would be great.
Cuttings takes a satirical look at public perceptions, fandom and fame, and what it means to be sorry in the 21st Century. Natasha Patel, Joan Potter and Maisie Preston as the trio of publicists, directed by Rob Ellis, Artistic Director of Relish Theatre.
Playwright Clark trained at the Almeida Theatre’s Writing Group. His other work includes Coconuts (Lyric Hammersmith), Warm and Chewy (Old Red Lion Theatre), The Strictly Curse (Southwark Playhouse) and Hold For Three Seconds (Edinburgh Fringe).
