The Game of Love and Chai
Nigel Planer’s Bollywood adaptation of Pierre de Marivaux’s 1730’s French farce A Game of Love and Chance.
“Planer’s adaptation is quintessential comedy that a modern audience may well find more funny than the original. He’s given it an alternative title of When Rani Met Raj, but that is only half of it. There are both couples and more than twice the fun.”
British Theatre Guide
A new play by Nigel Planer and Adrian Edmondson.
“A send-up of showbiz egos and a peek into the hollow heart of a life spent pretending to be someone else”
Brian Logan, The Guardian
Death of Long Pig
“a meditation on cultural identity and… quite a complex one. Myself I left the theatre impressed by Planer’s curiosity and intelligence”
Benedict Nightingale, The Times
“The tiny Finborough theatre, perched above a Chelsea pub is particularly noted for new writing. This gem is the work of Nigel Planer”
Paul Callan, Express
