A transfer of the acclaimed Edinburgh show This Will End Badly has been announced as Southwark Playhouse's Little space's first show of 2016.

The one-hander, which enjoyed a sell out run in August at Pleasance, Edinburgh, is a tragi-comedy written by Rob Hayes which dissects the world of relationships and our understanding of masculinity through dark humour and candid observation.

Directed by Clive Judd, the show will be performed by Ben Whybrow whose theatre credits include Punchdrunk's Drowned Man, The Winter's Tale (RSC) and Dead On Her Feeet (Arcola).

For the production, the company are working in conjunction with CALM, "The Campaign Against Living Miserably", a registered charity, which exists to prevent male suicide in the UK.

This Will End Badly will run at Southwark for a four week run from 12 January to 6 February 2016.
