Passion, Pain and Office Pandemonium; a Protagonist’s comic odyssey.
KAREN invites you into the uproarious world of our Protagonist. Seamlessly breakingthe fourth wall, she’ll whisk you through a chaos-filled narrative that has beendescribed as Fleabag meets The Office with Cameron-West actingdescribedas “thefemale Peep Show” (The Nerd Party).

We open on Protagonist's 30th birthday at Alton Towers, where her life takes an unexpected turn. Mid-calippo, she's unceremoniously dumped by her long-term boyfriend, Joe. Little does she know, this is just the beginning. Protagonist must soon navigate through office hell as Joe starts dating her arch-nemesis: Karen. This creates a perfect storm of heartbreak, societal pressures, and an identity crisis that threatens to engulf our heroine.

The final straw unleashes in an explosive office showdown, where the suppression of her emotions can no longer be contained and our Protagonist finally finds her voice.Through laughter, tears, and a healthy dose of sarcasm, Protagonist learns the invaluable lesson that the path to healing lies in moving through the pain, not around it, and in the empowerment of owning one's emotions that allows you to find peace. 

With rave reviews after a sell-out tour in Birmingham and London, KAREN is coming to Newcastle before heading back to the Edinburgh Fringe for the Underbelly’s full 2024 season. A must see!
