BRITNEY: THE SHOW
But, we've been developing it into TV with Drama Republic (who made Doctor Foster and Pure and many other brilliant things) and you can now you can watch it! The pilot is on BBC iPlayer now! Srsly!!
What's it about?
Bitney is the true story of what happens to two best friends when one of them gets a brain tumour. But it is very funny.
It was our debut show, and it was told in the way we rationalised it to each other, with a host of characters including: a stuffed dog and talented impressionist, a laddie anaesthetist, some Hollywood Producers, Rubeus Hagrid, the population of a small Welsh town, the two best friends in question (us) and the all-important star of the show: Britney the brain tumour, not wildly dissimilar to Britney Spears in the breakdown years. Hilarious, poignant and touching, this show is an uplifting reminder that laughter is sometimes the best medicine.* It’s about how often the funniest stuff happens at the worst of times. A show with a lot of heart, and a brain tumour. Britney is a sketch-style cum cabaret cum play cum comedy cum one cum all cum to the show. It’s about how often the funniest stuff happens at the worst of times. A show with a lot of heart, and a brain tumour.
*Ultimately the best medicine is the operation and please, if you have a brain tumour, seek urgent medical attention.
