'I'm thirty-six, I'm a comedian, and I'm about to kill my boyfriend.'
A permanently single, professionally neurotic stand-up comedian finally meets his Mr Right - and then does everything wrong.
Is Mr Right quite what he seems? And just how far will the comedian go to get a laugh?
Marcelo Dos Santos's play Feeling Afraid As If Something Terrible Is Going To Happen is a dark and biting one-man show about vulnerability, intimacy, ego and truth.
