A brilliant, punch, wacky comedy about how “all the world’s a stage”.

The Curtain rises. George is on stage in front of a packed audience – the only problem is he doesn’t remember his lines...or the play...or how he got there.

George is pretty sure he’s an accountant. The problem is – no one seems to agree with him. The Actor’s Nightmare follows George as he attempts to navigate his way through a dreamlike – or nightmarish – theatre. Along the way, he meets a larger-than-life cast of characters, including long-suffering stage manager Meg, glamorous diva Sarah, and the very grand Henry Irving.

Duration: 30mins with no interval
