One-night stands are awkward. One-night stands with animals are more awkward. And when you're as desperate to please as Bobby, things get awkward as f*ck. He's just a guy with too much love to give, and a burning desire to give it to consensual adult mammals. A one-man tragi-comedy from award-winning playwright Rob Hayes (Step 9 [Of 12]; A Butcher of Distinction).
Rob Hayes recently won the Tom Erhardt Award for Most Promising Playwright. He was also shortlisted in 2013 for the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum and the Royal Exchange Theatre Hodgkiss Award with director Ned Bennett. Rob's play STEP 9 (OF 12) ran in the West End at the Trafalgar Studios in 2012, starring Blake Harrison and directed by Tom Attenborough. It had previously been produced at the New Britannia Theatre in 2011. Also in 2011 A BUTCHER OF DISTINCTION received its premiere at the Cock Tavern before transferring to the King's Head, directed by Ned Bennett. The play then ran in 2013 at the Old 505 Theatre in Sydney, directed by James Dalton, and the Cockpit Theatre in London, directed by Ryan Bradley. Rob's stageplay SELLING CLIVE won best overall production at the Lost Theatre Festival in 2010, and ran at the Lost Theatre, Stockwell later that year. Rob is currently adapting STEP 9 (OF 12) as a feature film for Matt Lucas' John Stanley Productions, as well as developing an original sitcom for them. He also has an original comedy series, FALSE PROPHET, in development with Left Bank Pictures.
