LAST CHANCE TO CATCH OUR FESTIVE SHOWSFri 28 December 2012
Christmas is over and 2012 is coming to an end; a year in which the Olympics took over the capital, the Queen was treated to a boat party, and some Mayans had a bit of a mix up over the exact date of our impending doom.
Here at Soho Theatre though, we stick more faithfully to our calendars, which means our festive shows must come to an end. Boo! But there’s still time to catch A Clockwork Orange, Merrie Hell, Sam Simmons and Late Night Gimp Fight until Saturday 5 January. So if you find yourself in the capital during the 12 days of Christmas, be sure to book your tickets!
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
Action To The Word’s breathtaking all-male version of A Clockwork Orange hits Soho. This electrifying and testosterone-filled physical theatre’ horrorshow’ exquisitely captures and transcends the spirit of Anthony Burgess’ original literary masterpiece, 50 years on from its publication.
SAM SIMMONS: ABOUT THE WEATHER
A man is standing next to another man, they have nothing in common and nothing to speak of, perhaps they can talk about the weather.Sam doesn’t do things by halves – enter his world and you’re in for quite an experience. Pitched somewhere in the no-man’s land between psychotic breakdown, ground-breaking genius and outer space, a comedic trip with Sam will explore the furthest reaches of humanity – his and yours.
DAVID HOYLE AND RICHARD THOMAS: MERRIE HELL
“The Divine” David Hoyle and Richard “Jerry Springer” Thomas come together with a trashy, meaty buffet of festive filth and darkly funny songs. Stick your big toe into a laddered stocking stuffed with Crimbo melodies redolent of tangerines, tinsel, telly, tears and terror.
LATE NIGHT GIMP FIGHT
The country’s most exciting sketch group are coming home to Soho Theatre with an hour long seasonal gimp-tacular directed by Soho Artistic Director Steve Marmion. Late Night Gimp Fight bring the best from their Edinburgh 2012 show, with some extra special treats to spread their own brand of festive cheer this season.
