A startling revelation about the name chosen for a new child sparks an argument which spirals hysterically out of control. No holds are barred! Egos, childish resentment and unspoken feelings are relentlessly and hilariously exposed for the first time.
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.
“A cracking production”
Quentin Letts, Daily Mail
“A breathtakingly funny 90 minutes”
Patricia Nicol, Sunday Times
“The dialog hurtles across the stage”
