Bonkers Playhouse Presents: 2 Across, a comedy or cross words & romance.
Two strangers, a man and a woman, board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 a.m. They’re alone in the car, each is married, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She’s an organized, sensible psychologist. He’s a free-spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, “Crosswords are a metaphor for life, those who finish, succeed, those who don’t, fail.” Now he vows to finish. Why? He’s a competitor and she happens to be lovely.
This starts an eighty-minute ride described by critics as “Hilarious,” “Witty,” “Romantic,” “Poignant,” and “Wonderfully entertaining.” Two opposites in an enclosed space, attacking each other’s values but also being swayed and intrigued by them. They each have serious life problems that the other helps solve. Their trip is filled with unpredictable, but believable, surprises, even a passionate kissing embrace or two. As the train ride ends, it’s obvious each of them has been changed for the better.
Show begins 7:30pm.
Bonkers Playhouse Presents: Strike!
Sex, thugs and bowling balls. A very dark comedy. Set in 1984, and based on two true news stories, we follow the lives of 8 incredibly flawed characters. One rainy evening, this rabble of narcissists, cheats, drunkards, liars and blundering idiots all find themselves at the Bowlplex. They unwittingly gatecrash Eddie’s 7th birthday party, and the rest is history.
Perverbials is a dark comedy theatre company, with our plays and stories based on fusions of two well-known proverbs. Originally called ‘Strike While the Fat Lady Sings’, this play came to fruition through a twisted take on ‘Strike While the Iron is Hot’ and ‘It’s Not Over ’til the Fat Lady Sings’, and eventually came to focus on the word ‘strike’.
Show begins 7pm.
Tickets on: 0333 433 0985 or 07757767713

At his workplace, 55-year-old Ray is shocked to be visited by a young woman, 27-year-old Una. Fifteen years earlier, he had sexually abused her. This relationship, which lasted three months, began and ended when Una was 12 and Ray was 40. Ultimately, they ran off together, and, while Ray was taking time to compose himself after realizing what he had just done, he left her alone in a motel room. She got worried and left to find him, which led to both of them frantically searching for one another and raising suspicions within the small coastal town where they were staying. Eventually, a couple out walking their dog took Una in and called the police after learning why she was there. Ray was then arrested and imprisoned. Upon his release, he managed to establish a reasonably successful new life under another name, but Una recognized him in a photograph and tracked him down. Ray takes Una to the office break room, where the two engage in a long and difficult confrontation involving Una’s continuing struggles to understand and come to terms with the abuse and her intensely conflicting emotions, which pivot between anger, curiosity, confusion, and even a persistent attachment to Ray, whom Una loved, and she believed that he loved her. The fearful Ray, who is himself trying to forget the past and the potential feelings he had for Una, parries her demanding questions and descriptions of her feelings and experiences, all the while uncertain of her intentions.
Two grown orphan brothers live in an old dilapidated row house in North Philadelphia, deserted in childhood by an unfaithful father and by the death of their mother. Older brother Treat, brutal and violent, provides for his younger brother Phillip by being a petty thief, interpreting the role of father. With the love and protectiveness of an older brother and an orphan’s fear of abandonment, Treat takes away Phillip’s chances to grow up, depriving him of knowledge and forcing him to live in a world of illiteracy and innocence, relegating him to their lost childhood. As Treat is out stealing to put food on the table, Phillip never leaves the house, thinking he will die from something outside because of a near deadly allergic reaction he had as a child. Haunted by the death of their mother, he spends his time lying in her closet filled with unworn clothes. Curious about the world, he secretly attempts to understand things by watching reruns of ‘The Price Is Right’ and underlining words in newspapers and old books he finds lying around. Treat kidnaps and ties up a Chicago gangster named Harold. Harold, an orphan himself, with the prowess of an escape artist, loosens the ties that bind him, turns the tables around, and with gun in hand, puts himself into the role of teacher, healer and surrogate parent.
