    Trivia is a monologue spoken by George, a struggling final year PhD student of
    Literature. Every term holiday, George tells us, he must embark home to the domain of
    his well-meaning mother and her new partner, Dave. Dave is fantastic at pub quizzes.
    Dave will mow you down with his encyclopaedic grasp of football teams, cricket scores
    and 70’s sitcoms. Dave thinks George’s academic knowledge is useless; not part of the
    ‘real world.’ George thinks Dave’s knowledge is, well, just trivia. George’s monologue
    invites us on one of these holiday trips to the pub quiz, where Cambridge-clever and
    pub-quiz-clever collide.
