New play at the Tabard – Carl’s Story

Why is Annie, a busy journalist always on her mobile phone, encouraging her friend Beth to have an affair with her husband? How does her daughter know and why is she not bothered?  

This new play at the Tabard, a comedy by Gavin Miller, rattles along with high energy exchanges between Annie (Jenny Whiffen) and Beth (Emma Bernbach), Annie and daughter Darcy (Lucia Dean), Darcy and Beth and Darcy and a friend of her mother’s who turns out to be Beth’s ex-husband (Tommy Carter). The one person absent in all this is Carl, and Carl has a lot to answer for. 

Carl’s story, set in a trendy art cafe, is a fun play which keeps you engaged and guessing till the end. 

On at the Tabard theatre till 30 March
