The exciting world premiere of The Journey, written and directed by critically acclaimed stand-up comedian Stuart Laws comes to Pleasance this summer. Co-directed by Phoebe Ladenburg (The Superhero, The Lyric Hammersmith; Brother Don’t Preach, Theatre503) and starring Will Brown (Unforgotten, ITV; Call The Midwife, BBC; Doctor Who, BBC) and Phoebe Sparrow  (Downton Abbey, BBC; The Dresser, The Duke of York Theatre; Inside No.9, BBC), The Journey is a romantic comedy about a breakup, set on a spaceship.

 

A play about self-obsession and toxic relationships, The Journey is a funny, relatable and surprising comedy following two people on the unstoppable journey of their relationship. In his theatrical debut, Laws explores a concept which many people can identify with – breaking up on holiday where you are forced to continue to share space and there’s no escape. Imagine how much this is escalated if you’re trapped on a spaceship! Although the spaceship breakup is obviously anything but autobiographical, the story exposes Laws’ private and evolving preoccupation with communication between loved ones.

 

Laws has written several stand-up and sketch shows, but The Journey is his first piece of theatre. He has directed a multitude of successful online comedy sketches and series for his production company, Turtle Canyon Comedy, as well as producing his own Radio 4 show and James Acaster’s Netflix series. Laws is renowned in the industry for his unique voice and ambition.
