24th - 27th May

1998. In an overlooked pub in a left-behind town, an unlikely hero and his would-be agent plot to put themselves on the map via an insane World Record attempt - the longest time buried alive. That's five months in an oversized coffin, under a tiny beer garden in the middle of Mansfield.

A true and often hilarious tale of courage, endurance, hope, despair, love, lies and media manipulation by Argus Angel winners Brian Mitchell (The Ministry of Biscuits) and Joseph Nixon (co-writer of West-End sell-out smash The Shark is Broken). Previous collaborations include Edinburgh hits Those Magnificent Men and the multi-award-winning Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks.

Starring Duncan Henderson (The Shark is Broken and The Polished Scar - winner of 2018 FringeReview Outstanding Theatre Award), Emma Wingrove (Sweethearts & The Hooligan) and Murray Simon (The Ministry of Biscuits, Lord God).

A world premiere, from the award-winning company the "renowned and popular Foundry Group..." (London Pub Theatres).
