Katie became bored of her life just as The Man walked into it and announced that he had sold his life on eBay for a couple of million quid. Suddenly, boredom is no longer in Katie's vocabulary as she begins to fall into the farce of friendship and mystery that The Man carries with him.

Who is The Man? Why did he sell his life? Could his idea of buying a Caribbean island be everything that Katie has longed for? Is Ben Shephard from Tipping Point just a rip off from Bradley Walsh?

These are all important questions that are asked and answered in this intimate, entertaining play about love, friendship and the sheer boredom of everyday life.

This performance is recommended for audiences aged 15+
