‘I’ve even thought of a name for it. Delicious Agony. Coz that’s what it is. The villain’s pulling a fast one and the audience can only sit and watch. Do you know what I mean?’
Duncan is an ambitious young TV producer, ready to do anything to find the next big hit. While planning to bring wrestling back to British TV screens, he meets Victor, aka The Count of Monte Cristo. Victor is one of the old guard, past his prime but desperate to reclaim his glory days – and he’s a perfect pawn for Duncan to use in his climb to the top of the industry ladder.
Packed with hilarious one-liners, this razor-sharp media satire was first performed at Soho Theatre in a production starring Martin Freeman.
