A brand new play will be making its way to The Haymarket from Wednesday, May 11 to Saturday, May 14.
Written by Ian Ogilvy, Swap! will be performed by the Talking Scarlet Theatre Company.
It focuses on Brian and Susan Flowers, a couple who arrive for their house swapping summer holiday in Spain only to discover they have traded with a British gangster.
“The idea came about when my wife and I a few years ago tried one of those house swapping holidays where you literally swap houses with people you have never met,” Ian revealed.
“And when I got home, I thought that this was a really good idea for a silly, farcical plot.”
The play stars David Callister, Patric Kearns, Freya Copeland, Michael Kirk, Kim Tiddy, and Alan Mehdizadeh.
Ian added: “The play is brand new for the UK, but oddly enough, it ran in Warsaw, in Poland, in Polish for roughly five years, and the Poles loved it, but this is the first English outing.”
