Stratton and Cole are waiting to meet Jack to finally seal the deal, a contract that will make or break their careers. But it soon becomes clear that Jack isn’t going to make it. He’s been escorted out of the building by security following ‘an incident’ and now they’re negotiating with his female deputy instead.

The men can’t quite believe their luck. But far from proving an easy ride, Jack’s stand-in turns out to be an unexpectedly astute opponent and a much tougher nut to crack than her male predecessor…


Andrew Payne’s Hampstead debut is a biting comedy about the battle of the sexes in the boardroom and how perceptions can be deeply misleading.

Payne’s theatre credits include Shut Up and Mugged (National Theatre) and his television credits include Midsomer Murders and DCI Banks.

Denis Lawson returns to Hampstead following Little Malcolm And His Struggle Against The Eunuchs, which starred Ewan McGregor, in 1998, which subsequently transferred to the West End. Other directing credits include The Anniversary starring Sheila Hancock (Garrick Theatre).
