A new comic drama by Gavin Miller


A new comic drama by Gavin Miller.

A comic domestic tale of the past catching up with the present.

Set against a backdrop of journalistic misinformation and broken morals, journalist Annie and divorcee Beth have their friendship put to the ultimate test when Annie encourages Beth to embark on an affair with husband Carl.

When Beth’s ex-husband appears, the surfacing of a dark secret puts Annie’s plans in jeopardy.

As the pressure mounts, both woman are forced to face up to the past, a past in which they have been nothing less than loose with the truth.

Powerful and thought provokingCarl’s Story holds a mirror up to the audience asking what ‘Truth’ really is. Both funny and moving, the play is beautifully written. Wonderful to see two strong female parts being played with such relish by the two very talented female leads, Jenny Whiffen and Emma Bernbach. Their rapport was clearly a joy to play and for us to watch – a gem.

“I thoroughly enjoyed it. Carl’s Story is a very, very good play.” Sebastian Born. Associate Director (Literary), National Theatre (2007 – 2015)
