Following critically acclaimed, total sell-out runs at Edinburgh, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals, Yianni Agisilaou brings his love letter to the world’s greatest TV show to Museum of Comedy. 🤣
Stories, facts, impersonations and more form a hilarious and cromulent look at a lifetime spent quoting, referencing and learning from The Simpsons, how the show has embiggened his life and how he almost became the replacement voice for Mr Burns and Smithers!
Whether you’re a Simpsons tragic, or just an everyday fan, it’ll be fun-diddly-un! DOHn’t miss it!
A group of performers from acclaimed theatre company Cardboard Citizens is squatting in The Bunker to present a playful exploration of housing from the slums of Victorian London to the madness of London today.
An immersive multi-story speculation on need, greed and good intentions, Home Truths is revealed through the world premieres of nine short plays by some of the UK’s most exciting playwrights: Sonali Bhattacharyya, Lin Coghlan, EV Crowe, Anders Lustgarten, Nessah Muthy, Chris O’Connell, Stef Smith, David Watson and Heathcote Williams with Sarah Woods.
Home Truths will look back at the history of UK housing, from the Victorian housing crisis through to squatting in the 1970s, the ravages of Rachmanism in the 1950s and white flight in the 21st century. The nine plays will be split into three Cycles. Each Cycle can be seen as a stand-alone production, or alternatively audiences can take part in a theatrical sit in and watch all nine plays over the course of a day in one of two special Tri-Cycle performances.

Exploring light and colour with an invasion of coloured mist. Colour is caught in a state of suspension, obscuring any detail of surface or depth. Instead, attention is focussed on the process of perception itself. Janssens’s work is both disorienting and uplifting as the daily wonder of conscious experience is given renewed emphasis.
The installation is deliberately disorientating with very limited visibility. Excellent for Instagram pics!
