It would seem remiss if no theatre producer soon shapes an evening from the texts in Matchbox Theatre, The Guardian.

Published last Autumn, multi award winning Michael Frayn's latest book, Matchbox Theatre inventively blurred the boundaries between his work for page and for stage. "Are these mini-plays or short stories?" asked readers and critics alike.

Originally written for the smallest theatre in the world - the imagination - Frayn's Matchbox Theatre is now brought to glorious stage life. Enjoy a Kaleidoscopic range of new mini plays - or short stories - which are both hilariously entertaining and absurdly familiar..

One of the few authors to have had huge success both as a playwriter (Noises Off, Copenhagen, Democracy) and a novelist (Headlong, Spies, Skios), Michael Frayn has combined the best of both in Matchbox Theatre, a brilliantly quirky study of the human being in the everyday world; in Frayn's words, "A model of what we all do".

Hamish McColl's directing credits include the sell out play Calendar Girls (West End/UK Tour) and he also co-wrote and performed in Olivier Award Winning The Play What I Wrote (West End/Broadway)

It will be a unique evening in the theatre from one of the finest writers of our time.
