Ellen and Rigby
  • UK Regional & Tours

Lucky in life, unlucky in love, Ellen has been looking for a man. Now, thanks to the organisational power of the NHS, Joe Rigby has been dropped in her lap!

A rock star who nearly made it in 1985, Joe has been living alone for so long that he didn't realise that he was unhappy so it's a good job Ellen arrived to let him know. He needs taking in hand (not like that, you dirty ticket) and Ellen is quite the catch. She was Miss Old Swan in 1991 and that kind of beauty doesn't fade away no matter how many years are heaped on top of it.

After 12 months alone, these two lonely people are trapped together for 12 weeks between Joe's vaccinations. It's either going to be an exciting experiment in love or a colossal pain in the arse depending on who you ask. Will true love win out or will they just throttle each other?

This will be the first show back at The Court for a long time so come and join us for a brilliant new comedy by Gerry Linford (Yellow Breck Road, The Menlove Avenue Murder Mystery) starring Royal Court favourites Lindzi Germain and Andrew Schofield.

Darn your socks, put your face on and get back to the place where you all belong!

Liverpool's Royal Court will be adhering to all Covid-19 regulations that will be in place at the time of the show. If the show is cancelled or postponed then ticketholders are covered by our Covid money back guarantee.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
