Fresh from its hit run in Edinburgh, the piece will run at the London venue from 27 September – 14 October.

In 2020, Target (Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year; Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee; Amused Moose Best Show Comedy Award winner) made a significant life shift by becoming a live-in caregiver for Lorenzo. Lorenzo, an architect with a penchant for pranks and an irascible nature, had spent over four decades living and working in London.

This poignant show tells the tale of their shared adventures during the twilight of Lorenzo’s life. It is produced by Soho Theatre and directed by Adam Brace (Age is a Feeling; Liz Kingsman: One Woman Show; Alex Edelman: Just for Us).

Ben Target said: “To return to the Fringe after a five year absence in which I thought I’d never be able to make a show again and to have it so warmly embraced by audiences and critics feels like
magic, but the good kind of magic, not the stuff magicians do.

“I share the Fringe First award with the late, great Director, Adam Brace, who nurtured this show and so many others. He’s still here in the stories we share and long may we share them. I am so excited to have the show return to Soho Theatre and a massive thank you to the entire Soho Theatre family and all the glorious creatives who’ve been a part of this journey and for giving this show wings.”
