BRIAN & ROGER –
A Highly Offensive Play
Brian and Roger met at a support group for recently divorced men. Roger was attending because he was genuinely grieving the loss of his marriage. Brian was instructed to attend by his solicitor if he wanted to dodge paying alimony. Roger is in need of guidance and support, which Brian willingly supplies. Both are starting again. Both are finding it hard. One of them is nice.
Described as ‘Best British comedy happening right now’ (Daily Telegraph), the original podcast Brian & Roger is written and performed by Harry Peacock and Dan Skinner. It isproduced by Marc Haynes and Joel Morris for Great Big Owl.
“Hilarious… I had a whale of a time!”
“Dan Skinner is cryingly funny as
the decent, defeated Roger”
“Simon Lipkin is brilliant”
“Buckle up and enjoy...
a roller coaster of gratuitous fun!”
