The Bench Cancelled


A hilarious comedy full of twists and turns, intrigue and sharp wit written by the award-winning Kier 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 (a pompous, posh and cantankerous man in his post-prime years) is furious to discover someone has cascaded his flower arrangement which was taking pride of place on his “memorial bench” dedicated to his late wife. Instantly Sandy blames Joe (a young office worker on his break relaxing on the said bench) so beginning the tirade of well-observed rants, uncompromising solutions, unreasonable demands that makes 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?
