Jason Furnival / Sky Comedy Rep Presents Parklife

We’re thrilled you can see JASON FURNIVAL in a number of the one-act plays at BIRMINGHAM REP’S Sky Comedy Presents Parklife from Mon 22 May–Sat 27 May 2023.

The rising stars of the comedy world are showcasing never-before-seen work in Parklife, the second Festival of New Comedy Writing from Sky Comedy Rep.

Discover the funniest writers from across the country as they present a series of hilarious one-act plays, directed by Alice Chambers, Dewi Johnson and Amber’s very own Lorna Laidlaw, with each performance hosted by one of our special guest comedians: Celya AB, Scott Bennett, Lou Conran, Tal Davies and Darren Harriott.

The theme of all these plays: a proposal in a park.

Come along for miscommunication, mayhem, midnight trysts, sworn enemies, un-arranged marriage, an eco-protest, vampires, a bust of Jesus, fishing… and a whole lot of funny.

This festival is the culmination of our comedy writing talent development scheme with Sky Studios. Headed by Rep Artistic director, Sean Foley, and Sky Creative Director of Comedy, Anil Gupta, with script development leadership from Dec Munro, this bursary and mentorship scheme gives early-career comedy writers the opportunity to have their ideas and scripts developed in collaboration with the finest talents in the industry.
