£10 Adult Standard


Ben and Alex start their act seemingly as normal with the “ingenious interweaving of smartness and silliness” (Telegraph) that has made them festival favourites. But before long, the stage is transformed into their dressing room.

There, they rehearse, tinker, gossip, bicker and play darts. Flipping between backstage and onstage, The Pin take you on a hilarious, mind-bending and farcical story of two warm-up performers who have a once in a lifetime opportunity to seize the limelight. Is tonight their night?
