Sheep Soup’s silver-tongued original comedy (and very first show) was presented in a sold out co-production at The Television Workshop in Nottingham, transferring to Leeds’ Carriageworks and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2011 to great acclaim. On its return to Nottingham, ‘Curse’ enjoyed a sell-out night at the University’s New Theatre. The cast included Kieran Hardcastle (This Is England, My Mad Fat Diary), Luke Gell (Two Pints Of Lager…, Diary Of A Football Nobody) and Anjli Mohindra (The Sarah Jane Adventures, The Inbetweeners).

“Intelligent, witty and tightly-reigned… a pithy, insightful show with a wry sense of its own defined boundaries.” 

The Edinburgh Reporter

“A very entertaining and quick-witted show indeed… fast-moving and involving”
