Every Wednesday evening, Jimmy calls Kitty. For precisely nine minutes. At £1.20 a minute.

Jimmy is 36, lives with his mum and works at Newport’s only drive-through doughnut restaurant. Kitty is a phone sex worker living in the granny flat of a topiary enthusiast. Things were looking up for Jimmy when he met Kitty for the first time, but then he loses his job at the drive-in and starts to feel a strange tingling in his fingers. Kitty’s not a psychologist yet, but she has some theories about why Jimmy has started to disappear. With Kitty giving some life-changing advice and Jimmy trying to reconcile himself to eventual invisibility, this unlikely duo succeeds in turning each other’s world upside down.

From the writer of Love, Lies and Taxidermy, this Welsh Premiere of How My Light Is Spent is a funny, hopeful play about loneliness, longing and being left behind.

“Alan has a unique voice that is playful, charming and wonderfully weird. I think this is an entertaining, uplifting and accessible play that audiences in Cardiff will really warm to” Liz Stevenson, Director
