A SERIOUS BUSINESS
A TV commissioner, a famous young British-Muslim comedian, and his agent wrangle over a new contract towards a tensely fraught climax. A new play about censorship, racial stereotyping and cultural values.
A Serious Business is about the cut-throat comedy industry. The agent wants his client to be pragmatic and close the deal. The commissioner wants the comic to tone down his show, or she won’t re-sign. And the comic wants to shame the commissioner into backing down. But in the struggle of wills and argument the fall guy is never who you think.
New Wave Theatre are producing A Serious Business by Dave Florez for tour in 2019. A flexible three-hander with a strong voice and a great link to comedy audiences, we hope to visit a theatre near you soon.
