‘One of the best shows at the Fringe this year, for no apparent reason….’ ★★★★★ To Do List
‘A battle cry against the legion of monstrous critics.’
★★★★★ The List

The first rule of making art is: don’t respond to your critics

In the most provocative show at this year’s Fringe, three masters of smart, spiky, political performance delve into the torrent of critical fury that has been aimed at baffling, misunderstood and downright awful works of art (including their own).

Alternative comedy and theatre superstars Zoe Coombs-Marr (Barry Award winner), Ursula Martinez (Olivier Award winner) and Adrienne Truscott (Edinburgh Comedy Award Panel Prize winner) team
up for the first time in an international supergroup to prove they too are not afraid to talk out of their arses.

A show for anyone who has ever had an opinion on art
What’s yours? #WILDBORE

Created and performed by Zoe Coombs Marr, Ursula Martinez & Adrienne Truscott
