Join acclaimed local writer / performer Lewis Charlesworth as he presents ten new short films (including two live performances).

The pieces are mostly comedic in nature but span a variety of genre and theme – domestic, fantasy, farce, and romance. With three very new pieces which haven’t been seen by anyone before.

All shorts have been either written or produced during the last two years and feature northern locations and the best in northern talent.

Lewis has previously brought other well received comedy shows to The Met over the past few years, such as The Book of Northern, Cheaters and The Greek.

Some come on down, one night only!

“In the current period of overheated intolerance and mud-slinging, the gentle but very funny approach taken in The Greek is a welcome breath of fresh air.”

British Theatre Guide

“It is classic farce and a wonderful hour of laughs from start to finish... The acting on show tonight was first class especially from Charlesworth.”

North West End

“Lewis Charlesworth is a very talented writer.”
