Award-winning Nick Payne's witty and incisive new play. Read More >

Had an accident at work? Tripped on a paving slab? Cut yourself shaving? You could be entitled to compensation. Andrew and Barry at Scorpion Claims, Luton’s finest personal injury lawyers, are the men for you. When Kevin, Andrew’s high school nemesis, appears in his office the opportunity for a quick win arises. But just how fast does a lie have to spin before it gets out of control?

Nick Payne won last year’s Evening Standard Award for Constellations. John Crowley returns to the Donmar to direct his witty and incisive new play.

Please note, Daniel Mays is currently indisposed. In his absence Gerard Monaco will play the role of Andrew Eagleman.
