A story of laughter and alcohol, heartbreak and gasoline, exes and whys. Will they find love or do opposites subtract?

IN RESPONSE TO… POLITICS, 2017

The Other Palace Studio, London

“We have this night to speak out. Against a misogynist in power in America and a Vice President who doesn’t believe that he should have meetings alone with women. To a Prime Minister who says there’s no magic money tree and then finds a billion pounds to give to the DUP; an organisation that does not respect the LGBT community or women’s rights. That is what this response is for.” Artistic director of Ryan Forde Iosco… Read More

A man whose father tried to sacrifice him.
Two sisters with a dark family secret.
A man on death row whose cell mate claims to be the Messiah.

posted in: shows | 0

New Diorama, London 

This St George’s Day, Right Mess is inviting artists, writers and performers to look at what our sense of identity and belonging means in an age of rising nationalism. How much are we defined by the places we come from? And how does that identity interact with politics?

Right Mess believe in hearing as wide a range of voices as possible, and we believe politically engaged theatre needs to listen as well as preach. To that end, we bring together artists with charities, experts and those with personal experience to make work that addresses the problems we face as a society.
