About this event

A dark comedy about an Irish male nanny who works for rich single mums in West London, written and performed by Sam McCardle.

Manny is enjoying a Peter Pan-esque lifestyle of well paid cash-in-hand work & settling for meaningless dates with women who harmonise happy birthday with their eyes closed, just to disguise himself from the fact that he’s letting life go by without following any real purpose, or allowing himself to really feel anything substantial or lasting.

Throughout the story, he meets Molly, a disillusioned actress, as she sells beetroot brownies in Borough market, as opposed to playing Cleopatra on Broadway, & becomes an unlikely role model for Michael, a 7 year old spoilt, irredeemable product of a loveless marriage. All 3 characters face a potential future of unrequited dreams, and all three will have their lives changed by the events that occur.
