A salty, volatile cross between Indecent Proposal and a satanic edition of Come Dine with Me. The cast beautifully judge those moments when the joke curdles and teeth are bared. Exhilarating fun
Never Have I Ever is currently running in the Minerva Theatre, and you can get a look at this world premiere below in some of the beautiful production pics by Helen Murray. Head over to our website to book your tickets - but you'd better be quick, it's only with us until 30 September.
Jacq and Kas’s boutique restaurant has gone bust, and telling their oldest friends Adaego and her rich husband Tobin that his investment is toast is only the start of the evening. Cash, class, identity and infidelity are all on the menu. As the last of the expensive wine flows, a dangerous drinking game reveals long-hidden truths and provokes an unspeakable dare.
Emma Butler directs this explosive and savagely funny first play from Deborah Frances-White which stars Alex Roach, Amit Shah, Greg Wise and Susan Wokoma.
Have a watch of our new video and see what our audiences have been saying about the play.
This is a splendid start to the autumn’s theatre: a rollicking new comedy that turns into a blistering interrogation of friendship, relationships, wealth and identity politics. Deliciously scabrous lines abound, which these four beautifully matched actors visibly relish. Emma Butler’s production flies. Deborah Frances-White has scored a bullseye with her debut play. A West End transfer should surely beckon for this savagely funny comedy

The cast handle the emotional twists with aplomb. Greg Wise is oleaginous as Tobin. Alex Roach brings an acid edge to Jacq, Susan Wokoma gives Adaego human depth, while Amit Shah brings real passion to Kas’s call to be treated as an individual, not a member of a minority group
This is certainly a play which leaves you plenty to think about – and is very nicely directed by Emma Butler, who gives it pace and plenty of fire. The set is terrific as you walk in, hugely detailed and just right for all the dramas soon to be served up
One of the most startling qualities about this play is how effectively it zips from humour, anger, pathos and back again; I felt at times uncomfortable, challenged, but gripped nonetheless. I could chuck a whole dictionary of adjectives at this play, one of the top ones being relevant, but ultimately, it needs to be seen to be believed
