Cougar Glass is cruel, vain and shallow.

The Fastest Clock In The Universe is a contemporary classic by UK writer Philip Ridley. The play centres on Cougar Glass, the narcissistic 30 year old who is once again celebrating his '19th birthday' in order to seduce an unwitting young schoolboy. We find Cougar half naked under a tanning lamp, surrounded by stuffed birds and feeling increasingly tense.

The Fastest Clock In The Universe is at Chapel off Chapel from Wednesday 21 until Saturday 31 January 2015 as part of the Midsumma Festival.

The Captain, Cougar’s partner and elderly neighbour Cheetah Bee do everything in their power to keep Cougar calm as he gears up for the party; they know all too well what happens when things don't go to plan. Foxtrot Darling arrives dressed to impress, with a boyish charm and a twinkle in his eye - the party has got off to a flying start. Everything is running smoothly until a surprise guest arrives. As tensions rise, the game plans shift and Cougar is forced to decide what to do next.

This is a place where human cruelty and blind faithfulness clash and Cougar Glass' desires lead everyone around him into his most destructive birthday party yet. ‘We are all as bad as each other. All hungry little cannibals at our own cannibal party. So f**k the milk of human kindness and welcome to the abattoir’!

The Fastest Clock In The Universe is directed by Award-winning director Robert Chuter with a stellar cast including: Robert Ricks as Cougar Glass, Ian Rose as Captain Tock, Will Freeman as Foxtrot Darling and Scout Boxall as Sherbet Gravel.

Four Letter Word Theatre was founded in 2010 by Sara Tabitha Catchpole and now co-managed with Robert Alexander Smith with the aim to produce contemporary works (or contemporary performances of works) primarily for young performers and audiences interested in the value of live performance, and the shock and affect it can produce.

Four Letter Word Theatre began with producing some of the works of the late 20th Century In-Yer-Face Theatre movement including David Hare’s The Blue Room, Sarah Kane’s Phaedra’s Love and Patrick Marber’s Closer and in 2012 produced Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange and Alan Bennett’s The History Boys. It has also produced original works at La Mama Theatre.

In 2011 they produced their first musical, NINE, which was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Supporting Actresses, Best Dancer and Best Supporting Actor and was Commended for Best Production, Best Direction (Sara Tabitha Catchpole), Best Musical Direction (Trevor Maitland) at the Victorian Music Theatre Guild Awards, 2011.
