Cuttings by Ollie George Clark and directed by Rob Ellis is coming to the Hope Theatre in Islington this June.

There’s actually no such a thing as good publicity, there’s just planned and unplanned, and this is very much the latter.

YouTuber turned actor Arthur Moses wins an Olivier Award, and moments later goes on to drunkenly deliver the most offensive, outrageous and profanity laden speech in the ceremony’s history.

His publicists Gracelyn, Ruchi and Danica have quite a morning ahead of them. They’ll need to apologise on his behalf all whilst fielding calls, defusing social media, stamping out print, handling the talent, licking SOLT’s wounds and if Arthur could stop posting on Instagram for a second that would be great.

Cuttings is a satirical look at public perceptions, fandom & fame and what it means to be ‘sorry’ in the 21st Century.

Relish Theatre is a previously Norwich based theatre company, founded by Director Rob Ellis, dedicated to creating work that would appeal to a non-theatre going audience, and showcasing the work of regional talent. Currently producing Time And Tide by James McDermott, a comedy-drama about a failing Cromer cafe, which we recently developed through the Park Theatre’s Script Accelerator Programme 2018.

Cuttings is at The Hope Theatre 4th – 22nd June 2019.
