Douglas Adams Towel Day special - WE APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE

We Apologise For The Inconvenience - Douglas Adams TOWEL DAY SPECIAL!

DOUGLAS ADAMS and his trusty DUCK battle deadlines, trapped in a hotel room... A TOWEL DAY SPECIAL!

You loved this play. It set Edinburgh alight in 2019, we performed up and down the land culminating in a triumphant performance for the Hitchhiker's faithful at the British Library in Feb 2020. And then, well Covid, life the Universe etc contrived to prevent us performing this five star rated play... UNTIL NOW!

YES. We're back with your favourite production of the best (and only) play about Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams! Don't Panic! Come celebrate 40 years of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for TWO NIGHTS only in Manchester city centre before we hopefully set sail on tour of the outer rim later this year.

As it's Towel Day, the international celebration of Douglas Adams, we have a couple of nice surprises planned. Do stay tuned for details on twitter @5064productions.

It’s 1984 and Douglas Adams’s editor has locked him in a hotel room in a desperate attempt to get the reluctant author to finish the 4th book in his popular Hitchhiker’s Guide trilogy. Notoriously bad with deadlines, Adams is far too busy distracting himself with Life, the Universe and Anything Else Apart From Writing to care, including reflections on his failed Hollywood career, PG Wodehouse, evolution, his relationship with the Pythons and the fine art of tea-making. Will he make the deadline? (Clue: no.) Oh, and there’s a talking duck in it.

Starring Adam Gardiner as DOUGLAS ADAMS, Rob Hudson as THE DUCK and Jim Burke as THE NARRATOR.
Written by Mark Griffiths, Directed by Ross Kelly and Produced by Gareth Kavanagh and Matt Charlton.
Animation by Andrew Orton, with an original score by Paul Philips.
