Muswell Hill

8 February 2012 — 10 March 2012

One night in January 2010 an earthquake in Haiti leaves around a hundred thousand people dead and almost two million homeless.

Meanwhile, somewhere in a leafy north London suburb, a group of six individuals convene over avocado and prawns, followed by monkfish stew.

They struggle with worries over their mortgages, their mobile phone tariffs, their Facebook friends, their careers, their love lives, their diets, their holiday plans and whether or not any of them will be able to make any lasting impression on history.

Muswell Hill, another comedy of acute social embarrassment from this award-winning playwright, is the third of Torben Betts' plays to be premiered at the Orange Tree.
