Self Help by Norm Foster is a farce like no other. Meet the Savages, two second rate actors who have given the theatre the cold shoulder to become renowned self-help gurus. However in true farce fashion, not everything goes according to plan! Soon the couple’s newly found fame and fortune quickly unravels into a farcical comedy of errors as they struggle to maintain their new lifestyle.

You’ve heard that laughter is good for the soul! Prepared to leave feeling revitalized!
