A new play Celebrity by Paul Mathews, The plot centres around Max Kettle a writer who has writers block as well as trying to cope with a new baby and struggling to meet publisher's deadlines. His wife Amber is harassed with the celebrity clients demands on her PR agency. The arrival of Marx's long lost ex-con father leads to more complications.

The action takes place in the flat of Max and Amber Kettle in Kensington. Amy Whistance as Amber and Max Darknell as Max were well cast in their roles and worked well together.  Joanne Gardiner played the role of Freddy Smith the neighbour who turns up at the wrong moment. Lucy Styles played Max's sister Sarah who could control a crying baby with a George Clooney films her facial expressions were a joy to watch. Sylvia Hill played a sexy cougar, she is always a joy to watch and experience in delivery is a model for all actors. All the remaining roles were well played. I must mention the set, props and costmes, Congratulaions to the set builders on another fine set,
