Gasping by Ben Elton, Harbrorough Theatre, Market Harborough, Tue 16 Jan – Sat 20 Jan

Pic taken from:

The comedian and author of The Young Ones and Blackadder, takes a satirical look at the world of big business. The Sunday times described this as ‘A poisonously funny morality play’. So this is how it goes, Lockheart Industries are making serious money, but Sir Chiffley Lockheart is always looking for the next ‘Big Thing’. His pushy executive suggests selling ‘Designer Air’  – Perrier for the nostrils. The marketing phenomenon of the century has arrived.  What could possibly go wrong?…  Gasping is full of Ben Elton’s comic wit and fruity language while delivering a serious message about business ethics.
