Those who’ve seen it think…
“Absolutely hilarious and thought provoking at the same time. Whether a musician, writer, performer or anyone who has dared to dream, this play will definitely strike a chord.”
Bill Browne, Corkman
“A very funny play…For a person that grew up in the 80s and dreamed of rock success, The Nearly Men took me back to the dreams of my youth.”
Pearse McCarthy, 96FM
“All of us struggling artists will find something in the hilarity and analytical yet poignant script of The Nearly Men.”
Jack O’Rourke, Musician
“A bitter-sweet (and brilliantly entertaining) drama of the blind optimism of youth and everyday failure”
Mick Hannigan, IndieCork Film Festival
A two man play, written and starring Wasps vs Humans (Carl Antony Plover) and Simon David Clark
Regrets and cheap lager hang in the air like Brut aftershave. You can fail loads of times but you only have to succeed once…
Written and performed by Carl Antony Plover and Simon David Clark, The Nearly Men is a semi-autobiographical production, drawn from their own experience of writing a comedy series together. A comedy, which nearly made the big time.
Set in the confines of an unkempt bedsit, the play moves between two characters; a failed musician and a rejected scriptwriter and reveals the struggles and frustrations of nearly making it in the TV and music industries.
Searching for the answers, The Nearly Men is a brutally honest account of failure; revealing, raw, poetic and injected with humour, it will move and amuse in equal amounts.
