Comedy / Festival / Theatre / 20-23 September 2023


Show Time: 20-23 Sept, 21:15 | 22 & 23 Sept, 13:15 | 55mins

See the man with the neck brace sitting next to you on the bus muttering to himself. The old woman you have a stand-off with by your bins every morning. The mould growing on your ceiling you start to imagine is winking at you from the corner of your eye.  

We are all in the gutters. We’ve been here for a while and we’ve been waiting for you. 

Sketch, characters and finding your way back to the end. 

From Spirit of Wit Award Winner (2019) Hannah Mamalis returns with a host of sketch-like characters that uneasily inhabit our world. This is the show with no straight man, an idiot’s playground, comedic anarchy of the tarnished mind as we start to decipher who we are again after the fall.
