30 November 2017


£8.50 / £6.00 (conc)

Strap in for the Captain and Raoul’s playfully anarchic rollercoaster to the darkest corners of the grotto where the mold festers under the tree.

Controversial theatre company A Ship of Fools bring their unique brand of bouffon comedy to the Arts Centre Washington for 1 night only.

Expect danger, hilarity and horror as they tap-dance lightly back and forth over the lines of decency for your amusement and enjoyment.

You will laugh.

You will cry.

You might even kill yourself!

★★★★ “Instead of a love letter to the most wonderful time of the year, what we get is a searingly clever pile of hate mail. Many shows use entertainment to illuminate the dark patches in humanity. Welcome to Paradise does it exceptionally well.” – Broadway Baby 

“…Ship of Fools are without doubt master’s of their craft.” – Porl Cooper – Slung Low.
