This play is extremely dark, and I wouldn't recommend it if you can relate to the theme and/or get depressed easily. My partner, who saw the play with me and is very similar to the overworked protagonist, wished she'd never seen it. We were hoping the play would make light of his situation, or at least have some good advice to take away, but it was mostly just incredibly bleak.
That said, the play itself is well written and well performed. It's emotionally stirring and it gives you a taste of modern London. One of the actors had a tendency to stumble over his lines, but the other members of the 5-person cast were very good. I would recommend How to Disppear Completely with a caveat that you be prepared to feel compltely hopeless afterward.

“[The play] raises so many important questions about the nature of life in our hyper-technological, modern world that it’s impossible to avoid personally experiencing the overwhelmingness Charlie faces throughout.” —The Huffington Post
“… part expressionistic psychodrama, part dystopian adventure tale…” —Los Angeles Times
