VEGAS – Lighting Designer/SM/Fringe Techie

19:00, Tue 11th – Sat 15th June 2024 at Corpus Playroom


They’re married. They just don’t know it yet. But this isn’t Vegas. It’s Slough…

Awoken by her birth control alarm in a messy hotel room, Poppy finds herself naked next to her ex who isn't really her ex, Freddie. The two struggle to piece together the events of the night before, gradually remembering the details until they reach the horrifying revelation that they are married.

Poppy and Freddie have an hour until they need to check out. What happens when a Scouser and a Kentish Maid wake up married? You'll have to wait and see...
