3 Must-See Drama Alumni Shows: Chutney, Brainfart Cabaret & Je m’appelle diabetic

Chutney | 6 November-1 December 2018 | The Bunker, London

Written by our BA Drama alumnus Reece Connolly, his show Chutney is having a full run at off-West End venue The Bunker.

“The world’s shaking. I’m seeing the murder in everything. A cat crosses my path, I fantasise about throwing a grenade at it.”

Gregg and Claire are a power couple. Well-to-do and up-and-coming. They’ve got the house. The car. The careers. They’re living out their parents dreams in blissful suburbia.

They also have an insatiable desire to murder animals.

This mutually discovered urge threatens to gut their world to its very core.

CHUTNEY is a pitch black comedy about love, happiness, and unleashing the beast within. Watch the fur fly.
