Never Mind The Botox - White Bear Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
WRITTEN and directed by Nick Reed, Never Mind The Botox, an hilarious journey into the plastic world of surgical enhancement, runs at the White Bear Theatre from Tuesday, March 4 to Sunday, March 16, 2014.
Dad wants a hair transplant to get back in touch with his youth. Mum wants a facelift to get him back in touch with her. Amy wants to know why Tim dumped her just as they were getting intimate and Tim wants a penis extension so next time he won’t have to!
The surgery manager Cristina wants to be the biggest thing in plastic surgery whilst her surgeon husband, Tomek, wants to be a vet.
A modern day farce set in a dubious cost-cutting cosmetic surgery clinic over the course of a few days, Never Mind The Botox explores the world of self-enhancing surgery and the offbeat comical relationships between the people who find themselves in such a setting. It also examines the age old adage ‘Is beauty really more than skin deep’?
Confirmed cast includes Ewen Mackintosh (Big Keith in The Office) Mike Goodenough, Lesley Molony, Liza Callinicos, Dave Skynner, Georgia Darell, Alex Harland and Matthew Fraser Holland.
Nick Reed’s last comedy, The Life Coach starring Phil Jupitas, was nominated for best new comedy at the WhatsOnStage awards.
Presented by Thundermaker Productions Ltd, Never Mind The Botox is designed by Toby Davies and stage managed by Lucy Blairs.
Tickets: £12, £10 concession – available from the box office on 0844 8700 887 or online at www.whitebeartheatre.co.uk/.
