Candy by Tim Fraser, directed by Nico Pimparé and performed by Michael Waller, will play at the King’s Head Theatre on 19th and 20th January 2020.
Candy is a new, 50 minute comedy about masculinity, identity, love and isolation. It started life as a 15 minute short play and was selected for Reboot: Shorts 2 (Bunker Theatre, 2018) from over 1000 entries. The audiences raved about it, which were supported by some great first-night reviews. Over the past year Reboot have worked closely with Tim Fraser to develop his short play into a full-length solo performance.
