Pitch Perfect is set in high-profile West End media agency: All Brand BACKSLASH New.
Phil and Chris used to be the dream team picking up all the industry awards… but now, they find themselves under constant threat from Rodge and Barney, who are only a short walk ‘down the corridor.’
Are they past their sell-by date?!
Can Alex Judge, New York’s ‘hot & top suit’, save the day?!
We’ll find out with the pitch for Jerri Co. New York wants this one bad, but Phil, Chris and Alex already face stiff competition from The Saliva Group.
Pitch Perfect paints a comic picture of the excruciating tensions that characterise the business world of pitching.
‘The play’s best feature is its language: whizzed-up gobbledygook is spouted like Biblical truth as the characters rib and taunt one another. It runs the gauntlet from the brain-melting hyper-shite of “emotionalising everyness” to the wry “power corrupts and PowerPoint corrupts absolutely” – it’s certainly a good laugh.’
– Time Out
‘A strong script paints the advertising industry as a world of schmooze, sexism and fakery, with creative jargon drawing laughs from the audience.’
– The Stage
Jonathan Guy Lewis’s previous work includes the critically acclaimed, Our Boys and the Sunday Time ‘Must See,’ I Found My Horn, described by the Daily Telegraph as ‘a shot of pure joy.’
