Wilting in Reverse

Stuart Bowden

This is meta-theatre at its greatest and an absolute must see show. Stuart Bowden is certainly one to watch for in the future.

★★★★★ Broadway Baby

Wilting In Reverse is a strangely compelling story with live music, vigorous dance moves, understandable words and a fair bit of profound (probably life-changing) body movement.

From the internationally acclaimed maker of last year’s sell out Before Us (Mayfest 2015), She Was Probably Not A Robot and The Beast, Bowden’s unique style of DIY theatre blends “bizarre storytelling and perfect physical comedy” (Edinburgh Guide) with “a vulnerability that is not often seen in comedy” (Broadway Baby).

Winner: ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015

A courageous and lyrical hour of joy

★★★★★ Three Weeks

A unique hour of shifting genres and stories from a master theatremaker… a piece of eccentric, comic storytelling on the surface, a serious piece of theatre making underneath

★★★★★ The Stage

Funny, tragic, yet entertaining throughout

★★★★ To Do List

a story of love lost, and of the power of storytelling – and Bowden is at the top of his game
