Feeling Afraid As If Something Terrible Is Going To Happen

The Edinburgh Fringe sensation transfers to the Bush for its first London run.

Fresh from sweeping critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe - winning both a Scotsman Fringe First and The Stage Edinburgh Award - Samuel Barnett reprises his starring role in Marcelo Dos Santos’ ★★★★★ laugh-out-loud exploration of intimacy, anxiety and ego.

“I’m 36, I’m a comedian, and I’m about to kill my boyfriend…”

After years of swiping, a permanently single, professionally neurotic stand-up finally meets Mr Right - and then does everything wrong.

Strap in for a delightfully dark journey through self-awareness and self-sabotage as he decides whether love is worth the price of a killer punchline.

Feeling Afraid… is the “razor sharp” (Scotsman) hit play from the producers of the Olivier award-winning Baby Reindeer and the international smash-hit Fleabag, and is directed by Matthew Xia.

★★★★★ ‘Faultless execution is matched only by this audience’s thunderous, cathartic, cry-laughing response.’ FEST
★★★★★ ‘A masterclass in comic delivery’ WhatsOnStage
★★★★★ ‘The gag-count is ridiculously high’ Telegraph
