★★★★ “Birbiglia’s comedy is not to die for, but to live for” The Guardian

Chronicling his coming-of-middle-age story Mike asks the big questions: Why are we here? What’s next? What happens when the items at the doctor’s office that you thought were decorative become functional?
This tale of life, death, and a highly chlorinated YMCA pool resonates with audiences aged 12 to 112. Get your tickets now. The Old Man & The Pool must end 7 October
