About the event
The Good Landlord is a satirical comedy about two friends finding their dream flat at the expense of being filmed at all times.

Through Picked+Mixed, a tri-annual showcase at the Arcola Theatre, Metamorph brings together artists, theatre makers and an audience to present new and exciting work in development. The Good Landlord is an in-house production by Metamorph Theatre, written by Michael Ross and directed by Cat Robey.
The Good Landlord
Desperate for somewhere affordable to live in London, recent graduates Tom and Ed see a cheap, spacious, centrally located flat which seems too good to be true, and so it transpires, as every surface in the flat is covered by cameras, broadcasting to an unseen landlord. They are assured that this is merely for ‘security purposes’ by Clarissa, amoral head of a bespoke boutique estate agency whose real purpose is to provide voyeuristic wealthy property owners with young people to spy on. Whilst Tom is horrified by the cameras, Ed positively loves the idea of being watched over by a benevolent authority figure. Coaxed by domineering Ed into moving in, Tom’s anxiety increases once in the flat as he refuses to shower and stays out most nights, provoking the landlord’s displeasure and forcing Clarissa to intervene.
