The Compass Theatre, Ickenham

On the night of his 35th birthday, Robert struggles to think of a wish to make as he blows out his birthday candles. The lone bachelor, surrounded by “those good and crazy people” – his married friends – Robert is uncertain whether he should simply be happy with his lot or whether he should wish for his own romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, Robert attempts to understand the pros and cons of marriage from his diverse and frequently hilarious friends, and begins to make sense of his own persistent bachelorhood.

Stephen Sondheim’s ground-breaking modern musical, is a mature, intelligent, and wildly funny look at relationships, vulnerability, and “being alive.”

Pastiche are thrilled to present this multi-award winning and genre defining musical, featuring iconic songs such as Not Getting Married, You Could Drive a Person Crazy and Being Alive.

Pastiche will be raising money for Chron’s and Colitis UK.
