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 and settling for meaningless dates with women who harmonise happy birthday with their eyes closed. All just to disguise himself from the fact that he’s letting life go by without following any real purpose.

He meets Molly, an actress disillusioned with life, as she sells beetroot brownies in Borough market (as opposed to playing Cleopatra on Broadway). Soon Manny becomes an unlikely role model for Michael, a 7 year old spoilt, seemingly irredeemable product of a loveless marriage.

Age 16+yrs
