All Around Town
by Adrian Preater
Genre(s): Comedy, Drama, New Writing


Joshua, the new play by Adrian Preater, is a tragic-comic look at mor(t)ality in a dying world, through the eyes of a condemned man... and his duck. What is his crime? He has no idea. All he does know is that his ex-wife was in charge of the prosecution at his trial…and his duck has no sympathy.

Joshua is suitable for ages 16 to 160 and explores themes as diverse as the environment and parenthood, the seven deadly sins and crucifixion, in a seriously funny way.

Our story begins on Joshua's last day, when all he wants is a bit of peace and quiet, or a reprieve....and he gets anything but! The Executioner would like a word, and his ex wants a few as well. The cleaner sees a window of opportunity and his defence lawyer won't stop crying. And then of course there's Stenson, architect of the new "State", who can't resist a little tête a tête, and who knows, might even pardon Joshua, if the mood grabs him…

Joshua is a funny, thought provoking and highly entertaining play which keeps audiences spellbound until the very end. Featuring original artwork from acclaimed Surrey artist Julian Farrar (, Joshua is not only hilarious but also a visually intoxicating experience and not to be missed.

Hotbuckle bring their usual classy expertise to this exciting new play written by Hotbuckle co-director and writer Adrian Preater.
