When Alan’s car crashes in the middle of nowhere, he hopes his bad day (which started with his wife leaving him) can’t get any worse… and of course it does.
After trudging through the muddy countryside, he comes across a campsite run by the rather eccentric Virgil. With no other options and no signal on his phone, he has no choice but to stay the night. Unfortunately for Alan there’s only one plot left, situated in-between a doggy-poo bin and the rather annoying Justin.
Justin is everything Alan despises – a positive family man with his life completely in control… or is he? Because things are not what they seem and as the tension builds between the men, they start to reveal their true selves with hilarious and rather unfortunate consequences.
Past Tents is the story of two desperate people at the end of their tent ropes, forced into each other’s company. It’s about life, death and how people really need to talk more about the things they are going through.
Multi-Award winning writer/actors David J.Keogh (Journey’s End, Vengeance: The Demise Of Oscar Wilde) and Seth Jones (Clouds Of Grey, Someone Like You) are proud to bring their award winning comedy, PAST TENTS to the Jack Studio – also starring Mark Keegan (The Windsors, The Grey Room).
A funny, dark and moving comedy which contains adult themes and language. The play is also supported by Man Up? – the men’s mental health charity.
Press for this production
‘Laughing at ourselves, at our circumstances is something we do so well and Past Tents is a celebration of our resilience and spirit to keep fighting through.the themes that are explored live long in the memory even after the final ripples of applause die down. Past Tents, go see it because plays like this need to be experienced first hand.’ The Dream Cage
‘Perfectly pitched. Overall this is a well-acted and scripted comedy that runs smoothly has some laugh out loud lines and slapstick moments, mixed amongst some more serious and thought-provoking moments. A good piece of Off West End theatre… Excellent.’ ★★★★★ Numb Bum Press
‘Past Tents is a play that deserves to tour nationwide, it is accessible but leaves you with something to discuss over a drink. It is easy to see why Keogh and Jones are award winning writers and their work demands a wider audience. An absolutely stunning piece of theatre.’ ★★★★
