After his wife’s recent passing, retired American businessman Matt Browne takes a week’s respite in his favourite city, London. Checking into a small hotel, his stay unexpectedly turns into a voyage of self-discovery: life, death and the whole damn thing!
Having planned to spend his days contemplating his place in the world as a single, ageing man while enjoying the city’s culture, food, parks, museums and theatres, Matt’s time is suddenly taken up by an overly zealous, kind-hearted hotel clerk, a widow and an unforeseen connection with a prostitute from Zagreb. And, to top it all, his psychiatrist is 12,000 miles away in Beverly Hills!
Matt Browne’s world turns upside down as his seven day London sojourn tumbles into surprising places that certainly weren’t on his agenda.
Starring Michael Brandon (Episodes; Captain America; Jerry Springer The Opera) and Cherie Lunghi (Excalibur; Secret Diary of A Call Girl; Strictly Come Dancing), this play arrives in London after hugely successful runs in New York City and Los Angeles.
“Michael Brandon really was truly outstanding in this role”. Carns Theatre Passion
“Cohen’s direction of this scene complements Koenigsberg’s writing beautifully, capturing
perfectly the tenderness of the play’s final moments.” A Younger Theatre
“The highlights of the play are Matt’s exchanges with Dr Kozlowski via a Skype link in his hotel room. Three short segments, lasting no more than five minutes a pop, were an absolute treat. Jeff Bridges
plays the West Coast hippy beach bum to perfection, providing light relief and moments of insight.”
