Following an award-winning run at last year's Edinburgh Fringe, Anthony Banks' production of Raz will receive its London premiere at Trafalgar Studios in March.

Written by Olivier-Award winner Jim Cartwright, the one-man show centres around a night out in modern Britain and a generation that lives for the weekend whilst still living at home.

Best known for his 1992 play The Rise and Fall of Little Voice which premiered at the National Theatre in 1992 and won Best Comedy at both the Olivier and Evening Standard awards, Cartwright's latest work sees him team up with son James Cartwright (The Archers, The History Boys, Hollyoaks), who plays Shane, a young factory worker on a booze-fuelled night out in the North of England.

Raz runs at the Trafalgar Studios from 22 March – 16 April before embarking on a UK tour.
