Crunch! a new comedy drama

When: Saturday 7 January 2023

Where: The Memorial Hall, Royal Wootton Bassett, Swindon SN4 8EN

What do you get when you cross a dead iguana, an employee with a very rare medical condition and the HR department in a high-end toilet factory? CRUNCH! the new comedy drama from Sarah Archer.

Arthur is an over-promoted HR Manager, trying to find the path of least resistance in a world that has changed dramatically around him. Paula is the long-suffering HR advisor who keeps the ship afloat and herself sane by poking fun at her boss. And Jackie is the ambitious, and highly-strung new girl who is struggling to find her place in her family and the world.

But really, this is a tale, inspired by a true event, about what can go wrong when we stop ourselves from telling people how we really feel... when we make assumptions rather than having honest conversations, when we let irritation fester and escalate into... well you'll have to see it to find out.

Following on from her first play, Dearly Beloved, which has been published and performed internationally, Sarah Archer is tapping into her experience as an HR director for CRUNCH! "I heard the true story that inspired CRUNCH! from an HR colleague at an employment law event years ago, and I knew immediately it would make a great play."

"There's definitely a lot of reality in there that reflects the characters and the kind of nutty situations you encounter in HR and I hope that it gives people a chuckle!?"

Cheeky, funny and filled with charm, CRUNCH! offers the perfect solution for those who want a good story and a lighthearted escape for an evening. Join Paula, Jackie and Arthur at Crown Privvy Ltd. at The Memorial Hall, Royal Wootton Bassett on January 7.
