Winner of “Best International Show” at the Hollywood Fringe USA.

Richard Parker is a darkly comic play of fate, freewill and coincidence and features two men stuck on a boat, one of whom believes in coincidences and one who doesn’t.

Is there any escape from that which seems to be ordained for each of us? Just how important are our names and our circumstances?

Filled with dark humour, fluid dialogue and little know facts, this show is bound to thoroughly amuse, startle and entertain you.

Richard Parker is a two-hander that has been performed over 100 times to great acclaim. It stars Gareth John Bale and Matthew Bulgo, two highly accomplished actors, and is also directed by Bale. It is written by Owen Thomas, an award-winning Welsh Playwright.

‘Richard Parker is a great play… part Hitchcock, part Pinter, very funny, dark, with a great script and two great actors.” LA Bitter Lemons

‘A clever script boosted by compelling performances’ ***** Scotsman

‘I have nothing but praise for Owen Thomas’s dialogue’ Fringe Review

‘This spooky, absurdist two-hander is written by Thomas with a rationality that makes us hold our breath’. The Huffington Post
