MYSTICAL POWERS & WISDOM BEYOND KNOWLEDGE
A NEW OUTDOORS SHOW
End of Days
“This is modern street theatre at its immersive best – hilarious, ridiculous and yet mysterious and subversive.
Throughout you are not sure what you are going to get – the meaning of life, a magic show, some gags or a full on riot – and the audience wants it all!
By the end we are left equally baffled and enlightened, wiping away tears of delight, and you want to see it all over again.”
Joe Mackintosh : CEO of Out There Arts
I’ve no idea what !’ve just watched but it was brilliantly bonkers! I loved it"
