A new stage play touring the South East of England and Midlands

Twenty years ago, celebrated author and recluse, Samuel Pummel unexpectedly met the love of his life

Now they must both face the unthinkable

"Not to be missed"

"A wonderful, bittersweet play"

"Funny and   so sad"

"Will be remembered. Very moving"

A secluded beach on a Greek island,

A turtle called Thelma, 

and a bittersweet romance

that spans twenty years.


The Terribly Disappointing Mr Pummel.

A new stage play touring

theatres across the UK.
