Nick Hancock stars in new comedy, Octopus Soup at Cardiff’s New Theatre

Octopus Soup, a new comedy with Nick Hancock, star of West End hit An Evening with Gary Lineker and host of iconic TV shows such as Room 101 and They Think It’s All Over comes to Cardiff’s New Theatre from Tuesday 9 – Saturday 13 April 2019.

The comedy follows Seymour, the safest man in Britain. An insurance consultant who wears a belt and braces (and another belt, just to be sure). He’s in last chance saloon, and everything rests on this one important conference call. What could possibly go wrong? Enter Marvin, a bungling burglar with bad knees…

With Seymour’s highly neurotic actress wife Gloria awaiting news on a star TV role, the burglar’s psychopathic crime boss around the corner, and a share of the £30 billion insurance market at stake, will our heroes and their octopus get out alive?

Octopus Soup is written by Jack Milner & Mark Stevenson and stars Nick Hancock with Paul Bradley, Gillian Bevan, Carolyn Backhouse & Eric Richard.
