    Following on from the award winning Hysteria, If That's All There Is was inspired by the Peggy Lee version of the existential song Is That All There Is? by Lieber and Stoller. It follows a couple as they teeter on the brink of marriage; as the happiest day of their lives approaches, the panic begins to rise.

    If That's All There Is had a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival 2009 before touring throughout the UK, USA and China. It received consistently positive reviews, was The Guardian's 'Pick of the Fringe' and was shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award in 2009.

    Co-written and co-created with Lucinka Eisler and Giulia Innocenti.

    deliciously sharp and witty...The terrific thing about this show is that it works on many levels and always underpins the comedy with real emotion Lyn Gardner
