    Produced by Farnham Maltings and written by Oladipo Agboluaje, this story follows Eddie and Bode who have recently arrived in England from Nigeria with a dream of finding their fame and fortune at Covent Garden. A failure to understand the railway timetable sends them on a tour of the Home Counties via Didcot and Milton Keynes on a series of madcap adventures in which they discover as much about themselves as the countryside!

    Oladipo Agboluaje is a British playwright and an emerging force in Black British drama. Described as an exciting, vital new voice with a sharp satirical eye, Oladipo Agboluaje is winning recognition for his ability to write plays that transcend two cultures - African and British ways of life.

    This new show is a funny, touching, rollercoaster of a story about the enduring power of friendship. I saw this play in development last year and was impressed by the stage presence that both of the actors possessed and their ability to engage with the audience in way that was warm, witty and mischievious.
