Richard Eyre

Published by Nick Hern Books

3 Male 4 Female

Sir Neil Marriot had a 'good pandemic', becoming familiar to millions from his TV appearances as a government medical advisor

His service even earned him a knighthood, and he is now rewarding himself with a lavish birthday party

But his family are at one another's throats again, and he thinks there's something familiar - and somehow unsettling - about one of the catering staff...

A play about how the past impacts on the present, and how overconfidence can have disastrous consequences

Written and directed by Richard Eyre, it premiered at Hampstead Theatre, London in 2022.
