Carl’s Story

7 March - 30 March 2019

A new comic drama by Gavin Miller



The London premiere of a comic drama

Newspaper journalist Annie is a control freak at work – and at home.

She’s under pressure to nail a political scoop based on illegal phone hacked evidence. While on the home front, Annie offers up her husband, Carl, for an affair with close friend and divorcee, Beth… Are Annie’s domestic morals and professional principles about to implode?

When Beth’s ex-husband appears, a dark secret surfaces and both women are forced to face up to the past, a past in which they have been nothing less than loose with the truth!

“Miller has crafted a fine piece of writing, peppered with Wildean witticisms. Whiffen and Bernbach both feast on the dialogue and chemistry between these two strong yet vulnerable women, giving perfectly pitched, natural performances”

”With some sharp comedic moments throughout, the piece speaks some heartfelt, universal truths about life and its significant chapters.”

Powerful and thought provoking, Carl’s Story holds a mirror up to the audience asking what ‘Truth’ really is. Both funny and moving, the play is beautifully written. Wonderful to see two strong female parts being played with such relish Writer and director Gavin Miller has created a tour de force.” ***** Bulletin/Ultima Hora (Spain)

BrilliantCarl’s Story has to be seen!” Colm Meaney

Carl’s Story is a very, very good play.” Sebastian Born, Associate Director (Literary), National Theatre (2007 – 2015).

“Brilliant writing by Gavin Miller, superb acting by the cast. Set, lighting, choice of music were all excellent. It was very enthusiastically received by the audience. This is the best play I have seen in a long while, and I think it warrants a longer run.” ***** Viv Lake
