Spiderfly Tickets London Theatre

Spiderfly Tickets

After the death of her sister is left unresolved, Esther is broken and alone.

Review this show


Searching for closure, she is increasingly drawn to the disturbing world of Keith. As their relationship progresses the two spin webs of trickery and deceit – but who is the spider, and who is the fly? Can either of them escape their shared past? And will they emerge unscathed?

Spiderfly is a taut, thrilling debut play. It was long-listed for the Bruntwood Prize and has had the support of Old Vic New Voices. It is directed by Kirsty Patrick Ward (The Sweet Science of Bruising, Groan Ups) and presented by Metal Rabbit Productions (Radiant Vermin, Cargo, We’re Staying RightHere, Lardo).

Critic reviews

Webber’s script, deftly directed and neatly acted, has some grim humour and successfully rachets up the tension. But the drama’s climax feels sensationalist

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

Writer John Webber shows edgy promise with this story of a woman’s contrasting encounters with two men

· The Guardian

Tense, intriguing if under-cooked two-hander about violence, forgiveness and closure

· The Stage

Another great show from Theatre503 sees Esther pursue very different relationships with the two men in her life, with one big secret at the heart of everything

· Everything Theatre

This examination of human nature well and truly cements the fact that Webber is a writer to watch out for

· Broadway World

Short, stark debut play about a toxic love triangle

· Time Out

This well-written piece is cleverly staged and draws out terrific performances from the two actors

· West End Wilma

Webber has shown here he can create something distinctive and involving from a relatively straightforward concept
