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.
