Why is everybody talking about it?The award-winning stand-up Matthew Osborn stars in his new one-man play about a loner who finds comfort in a shopping centre until it descends into a riot of sex and violence.

Is it worth the hype? Yes. Osborn hit the comedy circuit in 2002, won So You Think You're Funny that year and was named 2009 English Comedian.

Watch out for? The actor who plays dead on stage for 50 minutes.
