From Bury based playwright and comedian Lewis Charlesworth comes a Brexit comedy (without the politics)…

Fun, relatable, and a real crowd pleaser, The Greek is a tale about an outspoken battle-axe with a big heart.

Keeping her busy body neighbour at arm’s length, Mary awaits the arrival of a long-lost relative. But revealing him could cause quite a stir.

Brexit, British identity, and the real people behind our generation’s big issue.

From the writer of last year’s acclaimed Cheaters: A play About Infidelity.

Long-listed for the Lancaster Playwriting Prize.
