WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Danielle Tarento presents the London premiere of Alan Ayckbourn's Drowning on Dry Land, directed by Guy Retallack. Alan Ayckbourn's deliciously dark comedy charts the unravelling life of celebrity Charlie Conrad. And what is Charlie's talent that has endeared him to the public? That's the problem: he hasn't got one. He's a national hero for being unable to do anything competently, a celebrated failure. When Charlie has an encounter with Marsha, a clown known as Mr. Chortles, his career, his marriage and his life go into freefall. What chance does the hapless Charlie have for survival? Will he be able to deal with the emerging truth about his life? And what about Mr Chortles? Drowning on Dry Land exposes our current obsession with celebrity for its own sake, demonstrating how celebrities can be destroyed as quickly as they are made.
