Mark Thomas: Cuckooed

Mon 1 Dec 2014 – Sat 13 Dec 2014

Written and performed by Mark Thomas
Directed by Emma Callander

Presented by Lakin McCarthy in association with Traverse Theatre  

A comedy of betrayal.

Following his award winning shows Bravo Figaro! and Extreme Ramblings, Mark Thomas returns to the Tricycle Theatre to tell the true story of how he discovered his close friend was spying on him for Britain’s biggest arms dealer.

A true tale of hubris, friendship, loss and undercover deceit told by an award-winning comedian.

★★★★ ‘A brilliantly crafted hour… beautiful and heartfelt’

Sunday Herald

★★★★ ‘A clever, absorbing tale, delivered with beat-perfect rhythm’

★★★★ ‘A clever, funny and angry show… an excoriating, heartfelt monologue’
The Guardian

★★★★ ‘Thomas’s show ruefully tots up the cost of personal betrayal’

★★★★ ‘Whatever your politics and pragmatisms, an unmissable hour’
Libby Purves (TheatreCat & Radio 4)
