Galatea Theatre & Twice as Good Productions present 50 minutes of soul comedy by Geoff Allen.
A Buddhist nun walks into the bar of the most cynical bartender in the world. She discovers why cocktails explain the meaning of life and he discovers the secret behind why a Buddhist nun would ever want to hide out in his bar.
'Sexy Buddha' is a delightful little gem. Sweet, funny, philosophical, and life-affirming - this is my favourite play to date from prolific playwright Geoff Allen. Beautifully directed and delicately acted - "I'd watch it twice!" - Kat Glass
