Stefan Golaszewski and Richard Jordan Productions Ltd in association with the Bush Theatre and United Agents

Following their successful debuts at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2008 & 2009, The Stefan Golaszewski Plays are presented for the first time together. The plays give us a glimpse into one man's love at two very different stages of life.

Stefan Golaszweksi Speaks About A Girl He Once Loved is a bruising one-man show about being 18, in love and unable to cope. In Walthamstow, in 1999, a girl and a boy meet in a pub. One day later it is over. The boy is still trying to deal with it. He has written a play about it.

Stefan Golaszewski Is A Widower forms the second part of the evening. In 2054, Stefan Golaszewski's wife died. Now, in 2056, crushed, alone and 76 years old, he revisits their life together and performs a one-man play dedicated to her memory.

Stefan Golaszewski was the recipient of a 2008 Fringe First Award and nominated as Best Actor in the Stage Newspaper Acting Awards. As part of comedy troupe Cowards, he has had series on BBC4 and on Radio 4.

5 STARS The Stefan Golaszewski Plays

The confidence of his performance and the uncensored emotional truth of his writing, are truly exceptional.
