    Kiri Pritchard-McCleanLittle Wander in association with PBJ presents Kiri Pritchard-McLean : "Peacock"

    Star of 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Have I Got News For You and QI Kiri Pritchard-McLean has had a busy few years. As well as hosting Live at the Apollo, fronting the Radio 4 panel show Best Medicine and starting a comedy school, she’s become a foster parent. 

    Didn’t know that about her?
    Well, until now she hasn’t been able to talk about it on stage, she hasn’t even told the kids in her care that she’s a comedian. Oh, and she uses a different name - she’s the Bruce Wayne of comedy but without the mansions.

    However, this year something changed and after a couple of the eggiest gigs of her career in boardrooms to social workers a show about becoming a foster carer has been signed off! So, come and join “Louise” as she lifts the lid on social workers, first aid training and what not to do when a vicar searches for you on YouTube. 

    Join the co-creator and co-host of cult hit podcast All Killa No Filla for a joyous and uplifting show from a comedian known for making "powerhouse stand-up from the thorniest of subjects" (The Guardian).

    Guards! Guards!

    Adapted by Stephen Briggs

    The infamous city of Ankh-Morpork is under threat from a 60-foot fire-breathing dragon, summoned by a secret society of malcontented tradesmen.

    Defending Ankh-Morpork against this threat is the entire, underpaid, undervalued City Night Watch - a drunken and world-weary Captain, a cowardly Sergeant, a small opportunistic Corporal of dubious parentage...and their newest recruit, Lance Constable Carrot.

    Whether you are new to Pratchett or a long time fan, this production is not to be missed!

    'Can't Wait To Leave'

    Click Here to Book Your Tickets in advance

    Meet Ryan.

    19 (but young for his age).
    School drop-out (but smart).
    Turkey sandwich enthusiast (365 days a year).
    Absolute stunner (no addendum).

    He's new in town, and all he wants to do is check out. The hard part is coming up with an exit plan.

    When the one person he thought he could rely on ups and leaves, Ryan finds himself adrift in a city he still hasn’t learned to like, looking for direction. Six months to kill, no money, no rules… surely this is the worst possible time to be alone?

    That's when he meets Richard, who seems to have all the answers...

    Fierce, razor-sharp, and uncompromisingly honest, Can't Wait To Leave is a bitingly frank portrayal of loneliness and self-discovery.

    Theatre Reviews :
    "A great debut [and] a fabulous narrative... Can't Wait To Leave is tender, enthralling, energetic, shocking" - Bookmarks and Stages ★★★★★

    "Hawkins gives his all to this performance and barely misses a beat... This is a show that has been written, directed and acted with a high level of understanding and care" - Broadway Baby ★★★★
    "An intelligent performance [with] excellent presence and energy which doesn’t let up... it’s an impressive portrayal of somebody who knows they want to leave, but doesn’t know where they want to go." - Theatre & Tonic ★★★★
    “A highly accomplished monologue… [and] there’s plenty to laugh at.” - The Quintessential Review ★★★★

    More Info !
    Can’t Wait To Leave had a short initial run at Waterloo East Theatre in February 2023 and enjoyed highly positive
    reviews, with LastMinuteTheatreTickets calling the show “a superbly written and performed piece of theatre” and
    LondonTheatre1 awarding it a five-star review.
    It subsequently ran at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe the same year and was highly praised by critics and audiences, receiving a slew of highly positive reviews and going on to sell out its final performance. The show was subsequently nominated for an OffFest award.
    A solo performance with additional voice cast, the show addresses and explores themes of loneliness among young
    people, childhood trauma, family estrangement, and sexual identity.
    Particular praise has been given to both the
    writing and performance, with BroadwayBaby writing that the show is “[written] with impressive realism and deep
    connection to [its] founding concepts” and BroadwayWorld noting that the play’s star Zach Hawkins “does incredible
    work... he waltzes through the flowing stream of consciousness with ease, handling the final shift in tone with depth
    and reflection.” Audience response has also praised the rare positive and nuanced representation of male bisexuality, something still relatively uncommon in modern media.
