Written off Theatre Presents


An incisive new comedy. 

The perfect way to start your night; grab a drink and join the girls.

Careless follows best friends: Sam, a Care Assistant, and Bryony, a struggling Actor. Their working days couldn’t be more different. It’s the night of Bryony’s 25th birthday. Over prosecco and killer dance moves, they are suddenly faced with truths neither of them can avoid. Careless examines the complexities of female friendship when worlds collide under the pressures of working in social care. Will their friendship survive the night?

Written Off Theatre was established in 2021 by Emma François and Eva Tritschler. Emma and Eva were brought up by NHS workers and have always believed in the value and importance of key workers. Consequently, both creatives wanted to focus on representing key worker voices in their writing. We can all agree it was a shame that it took a pandemic to acknowledge the dedication key workers give to the community.

With a sold out London run at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre at the Camden Fringe, the journey of Careless started off with a bang. This was followed by another eager audience at a second sold out run at The Hope Theatre’s Spring Season. Written Off Theatre would like to invite you to our Edinburgh previews at The Hen & Chickens Theatre this July. Careless is aimed at those with a sense of compassion and of course… humour.
