by Jon Haynes and David Woods (Ridiculismus)
A secret, a spa in Bangkok and two naked Germans…
In a world where anything can be indulged in and everything is permissible, Martin, a disturbed ex-pat, offers to share his tales of misfortune with Stefan, a jaded hack writer on a junket. Together they engage in an intricate exchange of complicated stories, weaving through movies, sex, celebrity and genocide in the hope that they will transform themselves, and, possibly the world.
With its razor sharp dialogue and lightning pace, Tough time, nice time is challenging, vividly imaginative and utterly absorbing.
It opened at the Barbican Theatre in February 2008.
