About: THE SUMMER HOUSE

Devised by Will Adamsdale, Neil Haigh, Matthew Steer and John Wright.
Directed by John Wright

Three not-so-alpha males are AWOL on a stag night in Iceland.
Then the Vikings arrive.

Mountains, myths and middle class angst, in a new play about friendship and modern masculinity. And the weather.

The Summer House is a first time collaboration between Will Adamsdale (Jackson’s Way), Neil Haigh (Cartoon de Salvo), Matthew Steer (Britain’s Best Mates), and John Wright (co-founder of Told by an Idiot and Trestle).

Commissioned by Corn Exchange Newbury. Developed as part of Fuel at the Roundhouse and the Jerwood Residencies at Cove Park, which are supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. Funded by Arts Council England. Production time in kind provided by artsdepot. Presented as part of Gate Guests.

Reviews

“Warm, funny, spot-on comedy with dark undertones – very entertaining” Whatsonstage ****

"A grin-inducing night out." **** The Public Reviews

"A wonderful homage to male bonding" Exeunt Magazine

"It's likely to be an offbeat evening, and totally disrespectful of the boundaries between comedy and theatre, high and low art." The Guardian (preview)

"reminiscent of the gentle horseplay of Noel Fielding and Julien Barrett in full flow" Made Up
