Loyiso Gola: Dude Where’s My Lion

September 1, 2016

Richard Gadd: Monkey See Monkey Do

August 28, 2016

On stage lies the treadmill that has become a particular talking point. As the projector screen lights up and a sleeping Gadd is awoken by someone in a gorilla costume and chased into the open, […]

Lazy Susan: Crazy Sexy Fool

August 27, 2016

This is one of those times where I’d love to describe the opening sketch, but it would spoil the fun to tell. It’s absurd, surreal, and dark, setting the tone for a well-crafted hour defined […]
