Background


The show stars Julian Clary, a comedian, entertainer and author, who has toured across the world with his one-man shows.


He became a household name in the late 1980s, and remains one of the country's most popular entertainers.


Mr Clary has appeared on numerous popular TV shows including Sticky Moments, Terry and Julian, Strictly Come Dancing, QI, Have I Got News For You and Celebrity Big Brother, which he won in 2012.


He also hosted his own natural history series, Nature Nuts, for ITV and paid tribute to the life and works of his idol Noël Coward for Sky Arts' Passions series.


Julian has starred in West End productions of Taboo, Olivier Award-winning Cabaret and Cinderella at the London Palladium, which broke box office records.


In 2016, he extended his critically acclaimed UK tour, The Joy of Mincing, and this year published the third instalment of his hugely successful children's book series, The Bolds.


Synopsis


In his super stylish, sterilely beautiful Notting Hill kitchen, Michael is preparing dinner for two.


As he meticulously cuts the vegetables with almost a surgeon's precision, he talks, with knife-like wit, about cases in history where the human body has continued to prove useful even after death.


As he slices and chops, one wonders who is coming for dinner and what the main course might be.


When Tim, his young guest arrives, they engage in a series of funny, thrilling but searingly dangerous mind games, as they try to unravel the reasons why they are both there.


Only when the games turn deadly do they catch a glimpse of the sadness and loss within each of them, that enables them to at least begin to connect with the truth, using whatever damaged shreds of humanity they still have left.
