Good Little Boy - a new play from The Sitcom Trials



The Sitcom Trials Presents:

Sit Still. Keep Quiet. Play Nicely

Good Little Boy

A One-Act Comedy
by Lewis Cook


Mild-mannered school janitor George is desperate to win back his estranged wife, the breathtakingly self-absorbed Lesley. But she is inexplicably attracted to a cruel and loathsome lay-about, and George finds himself loveless, homeless and hopeless. 

Driven to despair and beset by loneliness, George finally reaches breaking point and, in a moment of madness, he lashes out with grave consequences. As events spiral out of control, George finds his Jenga tower of deception becoming ever more precarious.

A darkly hilarious examination of infidelity, morality and Monopoly, Good Little Boy is a funny and quirky new play from the team behind The Sitcom Trials, Checkpoint Dave, and Barbara & Jeffrey.

Good Little Boy is at the Wardrobe Theatre, above The White Bear, St Michaels Hill Bristol, from the 26th - 30th January 2015. Tickets and details here.

Writer Lewis Cook was a runner up in the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe So You Think You Write Funny? competition, held at the prestigious Gilded Balloon. A stalwart of the Sitcom Trials team – a competition he won twice – Lewis is one half of the double-act Cook and Davies, whose acclaimed sketch show Planet Earth And All Who Sailed In Her took the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe by storm.
