Mayfest At The Wardrobe Theatre


Tucked up in the intimate Wardrobe Theatre, this is your chance to be entertained by inspiring new theatre talent for just a fiver. Every night is different, all the work is brand new, and you can drink beer while you’re watching. Bonus! We launched our collaboration with the Wardrobe Theatre in 2012, and it was such a success we’ve decided to bring it back.

It’s New Year’s Day, it’s dusk, and you’re walking home from the station along the river. That’s when you see him – a man, ahead of you on the pavement, clapping.

Who is he? Why is he clapping? And will you ever make it home?

Part mystery, part fantasy, part fairytale, this one-woman storytelling performance takes you on a journey home, via a night out with the world’s favourite thriller writer, Tom Clancy, and a trip around the world with a man with a rather unusual vocation. It’s a warm and funny sideways look at how we make sense of our experiences in a world that’s vast and ever-changing.
