The Half

Hilarious, intelligent and seriously moving, Danielle Ward’s play is a no-holds-barred look at being a woman in comedy.

Two comedians walk into a dressing room…

Reunited for a charity gala at the London Palladium, estranged double act Cathy and Nell haven’t spoken for ten years.
As they prepare backstage to revive their comedy sketch show based on the cult gothic movie, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, they realise ten years is a lo-o-o-o-ng time in showbiz…

…especially when they never resolved their acrimonious split…

“The Half is a play that expertly balances both its comedy and its tragedy.” ★★★★★ One4Review

Running Time 55 minutes / Age Recommendation 16+
