“An ingenious comedy... deliciously leftfield fare” Time Out on The Summer House

A Fuel and Royal Court Theatre co-production

The Victorian in the Wall

By Will Adamsdale

With additional material from Jason Barnett, Chris Branch, Matthew Steer, and Melanie Wilson

Co-directed by Will Adamsdale and Lyndsey Turner

Latte-land... London.

4x4s, grand design knock-throughs, organic everything.

A work-shy writer discovers a Victorian man living in the wall of his flat. Everyone's pretty surprised. Adjustments need to be made.  

Can the strange visitor unlock his hopeless career? His flagging relationship? A story buried in these walls for over a century? (Doubt it. Maybe. Yes.) 

A comedy with songs from Perrier Award winner Will Adamsdale (Jackson’s Way, The Summer House).

BSL Sign Interpreted performance: Saturday 1 June, Royal Court, London, 3.30pm

Captioned performance: Wednesday 5 June, Royal Court, London, 7.45pm
