Octopus Soup!

A razor-sharp new comedy with Nick Hancock, star of West End hit An Evening with Gary Lineker and host of iconic TV shows, Room 101 and They Think It’s All Over.

Meet Seymour, the safest man in Britain. An insurance consultant who wears a belt and braces (and another belt, just to be sure). He’s in last chance saloon, and everything rests on this one important conference call. What could possibly go wrong? Enter Marvin, a bungling burglar with bad knees…

With Seymour’s highly neurotic actress wife Gloria awaiting news on a star TV role, the burglar’s psychopathic crime boss around the corner, and a share of the £30 billion insurance market at stake, will our heroes and their octopus get out alive?

Marvin will be played by Paul Bradley, who was Nigel Bates in EastEnders and Elliot Hope in Holby City. Eric Richard, who played Desk Sergeant Bob Cryer for 20 years in The Bill, plays his very menacing crime boss, Alan.

Octopus Soup! will have you crying with laughter. Don’t miss out!
