About: Brain of Brittain

It's back! The egotistically titled show by the UK's self-styled 'most eclectic young playwright' is returning with a veritable pick n' mix of theatrical delights. Last seen at Battersea's Theatre503, Brain of Brittain presents a collection of Jon's works both old and new, from fully staged revivals of tried and trusted favourites to readings of plays still warm from the printer.

From a young girl who copes with her parents divorce by imagining Patrick Stewart is her best friend to a love story told entirely through a Facebook wall to wall, you never know what you're going to get from Brittain, but you can count on it being a little strange, oddly touching and very funny.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.

Jon Brittain is a playwright, director and comedy writer. He is the co-creater of the hit show Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho for which he won a Brighton Argus Angel and was nominated for an Off West End award for most promising playwright. His plays Phillipa and Will are Now in a Relationship and The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo had sell out runs at the Pleasance Courtyard and Theatre503, he was one of the Theatre503 five, he wrote for the BAFTA award winning The Amazing World of Gumball and he directed comedian John Kearnsís critically acclaimed show Sight Gags for Perverts.
