New comedy ‘THE COMEBACK’ to open at the Noel Coward Theatre in London’s West End this Christmas!

Sonia Friedman Productions has today announced that the original and hilarious new stage comedy, THE COMEBACK, from the award-winning double act, The Pin, will play a socially-distanced run at the Noel Coward Theatre in London’s West End from 8th December 2020 to 3rd January 2021.

The debut play from The Pin’s award-winning Ben Ashenden and Alex Owen, THE COMEBACK tells the story of two double acts fighting to wrest control of the most chaotic, farcical and high-stakes gig of their respective careers. Emily Burns directs the new production.

Each night Ashenden and Owen will be joined on stage by a surprise celebrity guest star playing a cameo role in the production. Details to be confirmed at a late date.

For the production, which is the first produced by SFP since lockdown, audiences and company will observe social distancing guidelines and strict COVID-secure protocols. All practices will be following the most up-to-date government guidance and SOLT’s ‘See It Safely’ campaign.

Up-and-coming comics Alex and Ben have been booked in the warm-up spot for a beloved but fading double act’s comeback tour. Neither duo are delighted to be playing to a sparse crowd in a sleepy, seaside town, but when it’s revealed that a Hollywood director is in the audience, both acts glimpse a final chance for their big break. Cue sabotage, mistaken identity and full on farcical mayhem, as the performance descends into a desperate battle for the limelight. With the action alternating between offstage and on, and the tone between Noises Off and Morecambe and Wise’s old-school charm, this is a warm-hearted, joyful, and dazzlingly funny new comedy.

Tickets for the production which will run at the Noel Coward Theatre from December 8th – January 3rd and are now on sale. Please visit for full booking information.
