'I'm thirty-six, I'm a comedian, and I'm about to kill my boyfriend'
A permanently single, professionally neurotic stand-up comedian finally meets his Mr Right – and then does everything wrong
Is Mr Right quite what he seems?
And just how far will the comedian go to get a laugh?
Marcelo Dos Santos's play Feeling Afraid As If Something Terrible Is Going To Happen is a dark and biting one-man show about vulnerability, intimacy, ego and truth
It premiered in the Roundabout at the 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, produced by Francesca Moody Productions, directed by Matthew Xia, and starring Samuel Barnett
'A cleverly constructed piece of writing, and often very funny' ~ The Stage
'Very entertaining and sharply funny' ~ Lyn Gardner - Stagedoor
'Blending dark humour, pathos and a hearty dash of millennial angst, [this] deserves to be the next Fleabag... the gag-count is ridiculously high and the writing overall has a Bennettian finesse... it's enviably accomplished' ~ Telegraph
'Frank, funny and occasionally filthy... a nice piece of writing, following in the footsteps of Fleabag' ~ Independent
'Funny and pleasingly absurdist... An entertaining, sometimes outrageous hour, brought to a very skilled climax' ~ Time Out
