"hilarious...a gregarious, flirtatious romp"

A Sheffield Theatres Production in association with the Bush Theatre

Lewis and Waldorf were inseparable at university. Ten years on and a lot has changed. In the middle of a drunken night out, they make a bet that will take their friendship to whole new level.

Adapted for the stage by award-winning writer DC Moore and directed by Richard Wilson, this is the world première of Straight, a razor-sharp new comedy.

You’ll never look at your best friend in the same way again…

Based on the motion picture Humpday, written & directed by Lynn Shelton. Contains adult content and scenes of a sexual nature.

"In short, Straight is a gregarious, flirtatious romp. As corny as it sounds, I have kept thinking about the characters today; such is their vivacity and colour. I might have to visit them again…"

"Director Richard Wilson (whose acting credits include the television crosspatch, Victor Meldrew) honours every thought-provoking nuance of Moore’s sharp-witted comedy, and draws virtuoso performances from his young cast in a production that is funny and humane in equal measure"
