It’s been a rough six months for Bobby, but his mate’s turning him vegan and he’s just started a new job.

Now, if only he could stop waiting for Charlie.

Then life would be really sweet.

A new play about friendship, vegan cheese and dealing with life’s lemons by award nominated playwright Andrew Maddock, recently named as one of The Independent’s playwrights to dominate 2017. This is Andrew’s second professionally produced play this year following HE(ART) in January and his third production at The Hope Theatre following the critically acclaimed and Off-West End award nominated IN/OUT (A FEELING) in January 2016 & THE WE PLAYS in September 2016.

★★★★ “Maddock’s writing is intelligent, insightful and beautiful” Views from the Gods on THE WE PLAYS
