A new black comedy by award-winning writer Malcolm Galea is set to be staged at Spazju Kreattiv on the 12-14 and 19-21 April. The Heimlich Hustle is the story of a hapless couple whose life is turned upside down when they let a passionate and eccentric young artist into their lives. Before they know it, their life has been turned into a frantic rollercoaster ride involving viral videos, questionable art pieces, and accidental death.

Malcolm Galea has previously written such plays as Porn the Musical, Il-Kbir Għadu Ġej and some of your favourite Christmas pantomimes. However with The Heimlich Hustle, he has explored a new level of crazy.
