19:30, Sat 18th – Sun 19th June 2005 at Corpus Playroom
Easter Week 7 to May Week
Cowards (a group comprising recent alumni of the Cambridge Footlights) will present their strikingly innovative approach to the sketch-show format. In 2004, the group enjoyed a sell-out residency at the Hen and Chickens Theatre in Islington, and were twice Bruce Dessau’s ‘Choice of the Week’ in the London Evening Standard Metro. Cowards are led by double-Perrier nominated Tim Key, whose one-man show Luke & Stella triumphed in Edinburgh last year, and has recently been commissioned for a series by BBC Radio 4.
The show is a preview for their run at the Pleasance at this year's Edinbrugh Festival, and is one of four shows being previewed by Footlights alumni in May Week.
"Brilliant" - Esquire
