Strangers Tori (Olivia Gosling) and James (Jack Gray) break the unspoken code for travelling on the London Underground and spark up a proper conversation. COCKFOSTERS combines comedy and a few surreal conversations along their Tube journey.
The stage is set out in the style of one-half of a tube carriage complete with the Piccadilly Line route map above the seats. Watch out for the loud announcements. The only difference is that the ones in the play are clear and audible.
Characters come and go along the route from noisy Arsenal football supporters, loud American tourists, and a surprise visit by the Grim Reaper. Just as any tube traveller would encounter except the final one.
Additional passengers who are not included during scenes can be recognised as they are all reading the same book “The Spare”! Which adds a touch of visual comedy to the production.
The humour changes throughout the hour-long performance as the relationship between Tori and James develops as they travel homeward bound to Cockfosters with additional passengers joining in their conversations.
Tom Woffenden and Hamish Clayton clearly understand their subject and how fast the dynamics change on a Tube journey. For anyone who travels on it will recognise at least one or two of the featured character types who appear along the way.

IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE IS BASED ON THE STORY THE GREATEST GIFT BY PHILIP VAN DOREN STERN DIRECTED BY JESSICA ALBISTON AND JOCASTA GODLIEB The iconic Hollywood movie It’s A Wonderful Life is an absolute must-see during the holiday season. No wonder, the American retelling of A Christmas Carol is as heart-warming as it is life-affirming. In his stage version of It’s A Wonderful Life, Joe Landry sets the story as a 1940’s radio broadcast coming to you live from New York City, where an ensemble of actors, singers and audio artists brings to life the idyllic town of Bedford Falls. Idealistic George Bailey is a dreamer, a husband and father to four, and perhaps even the heart of the community. Which is why when, one stormy December night, he finds his family business unexpectedly confronted with possible bankruptcy, he desperately wishes he had never been born. Lucky for him and the rest of Bedford Falls, his guardian angel Clarence is determined to change George’s mind – and finally earn his wings.
