There’s actually no such a thing as good publicity, there’s just planned and unplanned, and this is very much the latter.

YouTuber turned actor Arthur Moses wins an Olivier Award, and moments later goes on to drunkenly deliver the most offensive, outrageous and profanity laden speech in the ceremony’s history.

His publicists Gracelyn, Ruchi and Danica have quite a morning ahead of them.

They’ll need to apologise on his behalf all whilst fielding calls, defusing social media, stamping out print, handling the talent, licking SOLT’s wounds and if Arthur could stop posting on Instagram for a second that would be great.

CUTTINGS is a satirical look at public perceptions, fandom & fame and what it means to be ‘sorry’ in the 21st Century. Relish Theatre’s previous work includes Unicorn (Theatre N16), A Matter Of Life And Debt (Edinburgh Fringe) and the podcast Theatre Feuds.

Praise for previous work:

★★★★ “A multifaceted piece of theatre that keeps its audience thoroughly engaged throughout.” Theatre Weekly on UNICORN
★★★★ “Unpretentious, well-judged, engaging performance, that finds just the right pace and tone”
ActDrop on UNICORN
★★★★ “The most watchable absurdist play I have ever seen” Ed Fringe Review on A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEBT

LATECOMERS MAY NOT BE ADMITTED. PLEASE ARRIVE IN GOOD TIME FOR THE START TIME OF 7.45PM.

UNDER 18s ARE NOT PERMITTED INTO THE THEATRE FOR THIS PERFORMANCE.

The performance lasts 75 minutes without interval and contains strong language. No re-admittance once the performance has commenced.

Refunds and exchanges are not available.

talking back

7 - 8 June

TALKING BACK: A Night of Black Verbatim Theatre encompasses two plays: BLACK WOMEN DATING WHITE MEN & PRESENT BLACK FATHERS. BLACK WOMEN DATING WHITE MEN: interviews of Black women in relationships with white men. Expect talks of privilege, activism, & headscarves. PRESENT BLACK FATHERS: interviews that challenge the “absent Black father” stereotype. Funny, emotional, & sometimes too real.

period dramas

21 & 22 June

Ever wondered what Period Dramas would be like if they really were about Periods?

Period Dramas is a hilarious one-woman romp through the ages where stand-up, cabaret and tap dance collide to fill the gaps in the history books and interrogate the menstrual taboo both past and present.
