Romance, rage, revenge and rare groove. Been So Long is a neon-soaked new musical comedy written and directed by Che Walker, with music composed and directed by Arthur Darvill.

Yvonne and Simone are cruising for action. Raymond stole Gil's girl and now Gil wants to slice him up, while Barney is just after a quiet life. When all five collide, in a seedy London bar, their desires ignite in a guttural blast of cusses, laughs and unexpected romance.

Love looks set to finally conquer the two people who swore they could live without it. But how will they know it's for real?

Been So Long is feisty, stand-up and sing-out funk musical about people dealing with the frustrations of sex and love. Arthur Darvill's exhilarating score of soul, funk, jazz, reggae and blues raises the roof.
