You are invited to take a seat at the table for a riotously funny evening that questions whether a person’s name truly reflects who they are.

Father-to-be Vincent and his partner Anna are invited to dinner by his sister Elizabeth and her husband, Peter. They are joined by childhood friend Carl for a mature and sophisticated gathering.

The meal is lovingly prepared, and wine carefully selected. The friends are prepared for the usual humorous exchanges they’ve come to expect.

But tonight, a startling revelation about the name chosen for Vincent’s and Anna’s expected child becomes the catalyst for a destructive argument which spirals hysterically out of control. Tonight no one is holding back! Egos, childish resentment and unspoken feelings are relentlessly and hilariously exposed for the first time.

The cast includes Joe Thomas (The Inbetweeners, Fresh Meat), Bo Poraj (Miranda, Musketeers), Louise Marwood (Emmerdale), Alex Gaumond (Company, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Matilda) and Emma Carter.

This comic masterpiece is adapted by British theatre director, writer and translator Jeremy Sams from the award-winning French film and stage sensation Le Prenom. This international smash hit has played over thirty countries and now makes its first visit to Bath.

Age Guidance: 14+, contains strong language throughout.
