  • Steven Moffat's (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Dracula) hit comedy THE UNFRIEND is coming to the West End direct from Chichester for a limited run at the Criterion Theatre in 2023.

    THE UNFRIEND takes a hugely entertaining and satirical look at middle-class England’s disastrous instinct always to appear nice. Manners can be murder.

    After twenty years of marriage, Peter and Debbie are enjoying a cruise as a break from their annoying teenagers. Peter can’t resist exchanging views on Donald Trump with an American fellow passenger. There’s something slightly unsettling about the eagerly friendly Elsa Jean Krakowski – but there’s no point in rocking the boat when you’re about to get off it.

    Back home, an email arrives from Elsa, followed by Elsa herself. And when Debbie googles their house guest and turns up some hair-raising evidence, their good nature is challenged as never before. What kind of danger have they allowed to take up residence in their spare room? And can they bring themselves to say anything about it? Sometimes, the truth is just too impolite.

    The production is directed by Mark Gatiss (A Christmas Carol), with the show reuniting a cast of Reece Shearsmith (Inside No 9A Very Expensive Poison), Amanda Abbington (Sherlock, The Son) and Frances Barber (Silk).
