You are invited to a party
*BYOB (Bring Your Own Baggage)
A sexy, urbane young couple invite a motley gaggle of guests to their swanky upper-middle class home for a cosy dinner party. The food is high-end, the drinks are free-flowing, and the conversation is anything but.
As the evening unravels, so do the various relationships: the hosts’ passive aggressive marriage; the tone-deaf blind date between the eccentric neurotic and the neurotic eccentric; and the comically toxic affair between the wannabe actress and her sugar(-free) daddy.
As they party the night away, secrets, scandals and skeletons come tumbling out of the closet.
Meanwhile, in another corner of the world, an entire country is being destroyed…
A bitingly funny and alarmingly relevant social satire, Muswell Hill is a microcosm of us all – living lives of ignorant bliss and first world problems, while the rest of the world burns.
“A successful first outing for director Timothy Koh…Muswell Hill encourages audiences to leave our baggage at the door the next time we attend a dinner party, or at the very least, learn to empathise and understand the unique circumstances others may be going through, in the hopes that we remain civil and focused on what we have, rather than the petty things in life that divide us.”
“Muswell Hill is a very timely play in the face of the crises we’re seeing around the world. Director Koh, along with his brilliant cast and crew, have put together a wonderful rendering of the play that engulfs you as though you’re another guest…an escape that will make you laugh because of its honesty.”
“This relatable and powerful play asks questions of its viewers in a way that is brutally honest. Because truth be told, there is a little bit of us in those characters. This dinner party is certain to send viewers home with food for thought.”
“Honest, funny and hitting a little too close to home (as it should), it challenged us to examine ourselves, our society.”
