Harvey Greenfield Is Running Late

Wrong place, wrong time, every time…

Suitable for All Ages

A groundbreaking one-man piece of comedic theatre that asks a simple question: Is it possible to please everyone, all of the time? And at what cost to your family and health? In this fast and frenetic comedy, award-winning writer/performer Paul Richards explores our need to please, and why it's sometimes healthy to, every now and then, just sit in a shed and play Subbuteo by yourself, eating biscuits and listen to Meat Loaf.

The show ran at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 to critical acclaim. A run in the heart of London’s West End followed in early 2020. A full UK tour in 2022 was followed by another 3 weeks in Edinburgh. Paul has now performed the show over 120 times but, just like Harvey himself, shows no signs of stopping…

The show has been developed into a feature film, with filming finally wrapped in July 2022. Paul returned as Harvey, alongside Liz Barker (Blue Peter), Norman Lovet (Red Dwarf), Dave Benson-Phillips (children’s TV legend), Annette Badland (Eastenders, Doctor Who), Ewen MacIntosh (The Office), Mr. Motivator, Lily Lovet (The Inbetweeners), Michael Fenton-Stevens (let’s be honest, most things) and Howard from the Halifax adverts, among others.


★★★★★ The Scotsman (on Harvey Greenfield is Running Late)

"Like an alternative Ferris Bueller…the escalating web of chaos is skilfully scripted in the vein of a classic film comedy."

Highly Recommended - FringeReview (on Harvey Greenfield is Running Late)

"Paul Richards brings energy in abundance and charmingly, wittily, tells his tale, but the tale is a cautionary one : ignore strains upon your mental health at your peril. It is most definitely a Fringe show for our times."

The Scotsman (on Harvey Greenfield is Getting Married)

”There are no number of stars that can describe spending an hour with the explosive bundle of nervous energy that is Harvey Greenfield AKA Paul Richards…a fascinating continuation of an ongoing on-stage off-stage saga.”
