Another Sunday night shift. The smell of bread baking. The industrial thump, thump, thump of the machines that never stop. The ovens are cranked up to full blast, the factory is humming, and everyone wants to be somewhere else.

But this shift is going to be different. Because when a crisis hits the factory, the men have more to lose than just their wages...  

From the writer of the international hit One Man, Two Guvnors, Richard Bean’s brilliantly observed drama stars the Olivier Award winning actor Matthew Kelly and Simon Greenall (Alan Partridge).

Accompanying them will be Will Barton, Steve Nicolson, Matt Sutton and John Wark, all reprising their roles from the 2014 Park Theatre run. Kieran Knowles is the sole new cast member who joins the company in the role of Dezzie.

After receiving huge critical acclaim in London in 2014 and prior to a New York engagement, where it will be opening the prestigious ‘Brits off Broadway’ Festival, this funny and moving play now comes to Guildford for one week only.


PLEASE NOTE: Very strong language and smoking throughout
