Worst Wedding Ever

Chris Chibnall


‘Our Family? Pulling together? That is like my worst nightmare.’ 

Rachel and Scott are getting married. They are also buying a house together – never the easiest of things to do at the same time. When the house price goes up, their plans for the dream wedding have to bedownsized to the local registry office. Rachel’s mother, however, has other ideas. What if the family could join forces and make it a wedding to be proud of?

With a marquee in the back garden, a hand-me-down dress, the pub band and two fully functioning Portaloos, surely the day will pass without a hitch?

The first new play in a decade from Chris Chibnall, the writer of ITV’s smash success Broadchurch, as well as Torchwood

'I really fell for this 2014 comedy by Chris Chibnall... Not just because it is a hoot, a wickedly joyful take on the hilarity and nonsense of weddings; but because one use of theatre is to reflect us back to ourselves, with a sort of exaggerated recognition that turns the laugh right back in our faces with love... there are coup-de-theatre technical surprises, lighting used surreally at times, an improbable rotating sandpit and members of a live band appearing from the ground, a shed, a Portaloo. It is, as theatre must be, an event. It’s fun to be there... I arrived in a gloomy mood and emerged giggling.' Libby Purves, Theatre Cat ★★★★★

'a triumph: a big, bold, unashamedly populist breath of fresh air that deserves to be a hit' What's On Stage ★★★★★

‘[Full of] emotional shocks and sheer belly laughs…’ The Stage

‘a raucous comedy…’ The Telegraph

‘The sort of properly funny yet unexpectedly touching family comedy that we associate with Alan Ayckbourn.’ The Times

‘One of the hottest writers in Britain.’ – Daily Telegraph
