Brexit, benefits, broken homes and viagra are only a few of the issues examined in this new original play by Matt Roberts.


Set within the 4 walls of a local pharmacy, this one room situation comedy/drama features two opinionated, strong willed and polarised members of staff. As they witness the ailments and sicknesses of the public, they may be able to administer the medicine, but can they find the remedy for the ills of Britain?

“What’s in a name?”
Thirty seconds later, we still didn’t know; but the
Middle-Weight Theatre Company was founded in Exeter.
In 2013, Matt Roberts & Tom Stabb with a joint disposition and mutual love of dialogue and comedy, not to mention a shared caffeine addiction, combined their efforts towards creating a focused and dedicated touring theatre company through the means of new and original writing.
This they achieved with performances across the UK and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013/2015 with ‘Sound Bite’ and ‘Insensible’.
