The Unfriend

The Unfriend

Wyndhams Theatre, London, WC2H 0DA
  • Steven Moffat‘s (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Dracula) smash hit comedy THE UNFRIEND returns to the West End for a limited run at the Wyndham's Theatre from Winter 2023 to Spring 2024.

    BAFTA Award winning comedian Lee Mack (Not Going Out, Would I Lie To You?) and Sarah Alexander (Coupling, Smack The Pony) star alongside Frances Barber (Silk, Doctor Who) who returns to reprise her original role of Elsa.

    THE UNFRIENDdirected by Mark Gatiss (A Christmas Carol), is a hugely entertaining, yet satirical look at middle-class England’s disastrous instinct always to appear nice. Manners can be murder. 

    After twenty years of marriage, Peter and Debbie are enjoying a cruise as a break from their annoying teenagers. Peter can’t resist exchanging views on Donald Trump with an American fellow passenger. There’s something slightly unsettling about the eagerly friendly Elsa Jean Krakowski – but there’s no point in rocking the boat when you’re about to get off it.

    Back home, an email arrives from Elsa, followed by Elsa herself. And when Debbie googles their house guest and turns up some hair-raising evidence, their good nature is challenged as never before. What kind of danger have they allowed to take up residence in their spare room? And can they bring themselves to say anything about it? Sometimes, the truth is just too impolite.
