Having lunch. One would’ve thought it terribly easy... a high-octane series of musical comedy vignettes asking that vital question: what is it that really happens at Lunch? From the fashionable perils of adequate dog size, to an ill-fortuned death in Knightsbridge and the doomed travails of a duck called Susan.
Song, searing relevance and that rather lovely feeling one gets when you manage to grab a hold of the very last saucisson sec in the charcuterie aisle of the Fulham Waitrose.
Written and Performed By: Luke Courtier
★★★★★ The Good Review ‘a hilarious hour'
★★★★ Broadway Baby
‘Luke Courtier sprays absurdist tangentials out from behind his six-string like Willy Wonka throwing WHAM! bars to us from out of the back of a Nissan Sunny 1.5 SGL.’ - The Huffington Post
You better pay attention, lest the rapid-fire jokes fly over your head ... there’s impressive musicality, textbook timing and the deadest of deadpan deliveries in a show that’s smartly scripted and well directed. Go see Luke Courtier. - The Sunday Times
