The bet of a lifetime takes centre stage in A Punter’s Prayer, a wry North London-set dramedy about getting by, dreaming big and rolling the dice. Jack (Tommy O’Neill) is down on his luck, and running out of chances to escape his increasingly precarious life. When he decides to bet against the odds on the horses, the prospect of a fortune beckons. But as ever, life is never so straightforward. Featuring EEFF alumnus Dexter Fletcher, this rollicking debut makes the case that when the odds are stacked against you, bet your life on it.
Followed by a Q&A.Tickets available from the Genesis website here.
