The Bench

Thursday 17th June


A hilarious play full of twists and turns, intrigue and sharp wit written by the award-winning Keir McAllister (Live at The Apollo, Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats), The Bench tells the tale of an epic conflict over a public bench.    

Sandy is furious to discover someone has scattered his flower arrangement over his “memorial bench”. Instantly Sandy blames Joe, a young office worker on his break relaxing on said bench, thus beginning a tirade of well-observed rants, uncompromising solutions and unreasonable demands that make this shared journey of self-discovery an amusing ride.

See how the two generations fight it out in a battle that will change the two of them forever, and where they may finally answer the eternal question of – when is a bench not a bench?
