Ingredient X is a tough new comedy about addiction.

It’s Saturday night and the judges are gathering for their prime-time slot, feeding the nation their weekly fix. Except the harshest critics are sitting on your sofa and the mute button doesn’t seem to work.

Playwright Nick Grosso is a product of the Royal Court young writers programme and has previously had his plays Peaches, Sweetheart, Real Classy Affair and Kosher Harry produced by the venue.

Ingredient X stars former Teachers actor James Lance and Lesley Sharp, whose recent West End credits include The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice, Ghosts and Harper Regan.

Ingredient X is recommended for theatregoers aged 14 and older.
