Already a success at the Brighton and Swindon fringe festivals, comedy writer/performer Paul Richards brings his ambitious new solo play, Harvey Greenfield is Running Late, to Cambridge for four intimate performances before it heads to the Edinburgh Fringe for three weeks in August.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
A frantic, comedic story about a man trying to please everyone. Meet Harvey Greenfield - a successful, bright, mid-thirty-something who just doesn't have the ability to say no. In demand for the first time in his life, Harvey is running out of time...is it possible to please everyone, all of the time? And at what cost to his family and his health? Award-winning writer and performer Paul Richards explores our need to please, and why sometimes it's healthy to just stop, sit in a shed, eat biscuits and pretend to be Meat Loaf.
“Richards seems to have comic energy to burn…he makes Lee Evans seem narcoleptic by comparison. The result is mostly laugh-out-loud, but punctuated with sorrow. Ingeniously written and powerfully performed. “ - The Swindonian
Performance lasts: 1 hour
