Description

You are invited to take a seat at the table for a riotously funny evening that questions if what we're called reflects who we truly are.

Father-to-be Vincent and his partner Anna are invited to dinner by his sister Elizabeth and her husband, Peter. They are joined by childhood friend Carl for a mature and sophisticated gathering.

The meal is lovingly prepared and wine carefully selected. The friends are prepared for the usual humorous exchanges they've come to expect.

But tonight a startling revelation about the name chosen for Vincent's expected child becomes the catalyst for a destructive argument which spirals hysterically out of control. Tonight no one is holding back! Egos, childish resentment and unspoken feelings are relentlessly and hilariously exposed for the first time.

Can their friendship survive tonight's vicious name calling and home truths? And how well did they ever really know each other? One thing's for certain, their relationships are about to change forever!

Adapted by British theatre director, writer and translator Jeremy Sams from award-winning French film and stage sensation Le Prénom, What's In A Name? is a comic masterpiece receiving its British premiere at The REP.
