The third instalment in the very popular Idiots plays is here! Nic Sampson has done it again - having written a side-splittingly hilarious script and having brought on board an array of comedic acting and directorial talent!

Anthony Brooks, the star of “Bicycle” (one of the seminal indie films of the last decade) is in town to watch his starring performance in “You Gotta Love Her” at the local cinema. This is Brook’s mainstream debut as a romantic lead playing opposite Kathryn Heigl. To Charles, the heartbroken and disgruntled indie ticket-taker, this is an outrage! Charles’ disgust grows thick when he notices that Brooks’ date for the evening is his own ex-girlfriend Kifka.

Meanwhile, Poppy - the weary popcorn attendant - has an encounter with the worst customer ever. Then she has it again. And again. And again...

Furthermore, the desperate cinema manager Leonard has the arduous job of entertaining the cinema owner’s spoilt daughter Allison who leisurely distributes ‘frowny face’ and ‘smiley face’ stickers at Leonard’s every incompetent move…

Meet these and many more equally delightful and disturbing characters thrown together in some hilarious, conflicting and downright bizarre situations!

With a large cast of popular actors and limited seating this play is likely to sell out. Best to book!

Starring: Michelle Blundell, Todd Emerson, Nic Sampson, Ryan Richards, Emmet Skilton, Yvette Parsons, Josephine Stewart-Tewhiu, Calum Gittins, Shoshana McCallum, Omar Al-Sobky and Andrew Ford.

Direction: Tom Sainsbury, Abigail Greenwood, Peter Salmon, Dena Kennedy and Aidee Walker

Written by Nic Sampson

“The standard of writing, direction and acting in each scene is consistently high – if it were a contest, it would be impossible to pick a winner.” Caoilinn Hughes – Theatreview “Idiots” (2010)

“New writer Nic Sampson has recruited a smorgasbord of talent in terms of actors and directors, and there are many brilliant comic moments in his 90-minute script for them to sink their teeth into.” Sian Robertson – Theatreview “Idiots: Back 2 School”
