Agnes is only ever trying to help. As she tops up the nibbles at her Dad’s funeral party, we find her grappling with the big issues: life, love, and the proper presentation of Cheesy Footballs. Rambling to us over the finger-foods, Agnes inadvertently unfolds a tale of hilarity, disappointment, and a woman who can’t give anything but love.
Written by Mark Fiddaman and Lucien Young, directed by Ben Ashenden and starring Abi Tedder, this is a raucous, poignant comedy about the messiness of living. Last year, Anything But won the Cambridge Footlights Harry Porter Prize, for a one-hour comedy play, as judged by Tim Key.
