CRUNCH poster


What do you get when you cross a dead iguana, an employee with a very rare medical condition and the HR department in a high-end toilet factory?


Crunch! The new comedy drama from Sarah Archer.


Arthur is an over-promoted HR Manager, trying to find the path of least resistance in a world that has changed dramatically around him. Paula is the long-suffering HR advisor who keeps the ship afloat and herself sane by poking fun at her boss. And Jackie is the ambitious, and highly-strung new girl who is struggling to find her place in her family and the world.


But really, this is a tale, inspired by a true event, of three people who talk without sharing what’s really important and the chaos that ensues as a result.

Let us know what you thought of Crunch!

We hope you enjoyed the show!
