Co-writers of The History of the Troubles Accordin to my Da – and responsible for a string of hilarious hits at the Lyric and around the country – the hugely popular comic duo Grimes and McKee have now written their first full-length play for Tinderbox Theatre Company.

Mel is scared.  His life is passing him by and suddenly he’s lost the ability to ignore it. Somehow he has ended up in a job he hates, with a woman he likes, who doesn’t know he exists.  And he doesn’t seem able to get out of the bar for long enough to do anything about it…

Following last year’s award-winning Girls and Dolls, Tinderbox presents a serious comedy about drink, denial and desperate measures.
