Straight

Sold out

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.
