Happy Meal – Traverse Theatre

Happy Meal from writer Tabby Lamb is a gloriously nostalgic feel-good fringe must-see. From the moment we enter the audience are transported back to 90s penguin digital world, meeting the cast during incoming. The soundscape from Eliyana Evans is redolent perfection throughout the show and ensures transition to this millennial world is easy. The space is dominated by two giant Happy Meal boxes with projections, the use of projection throughout us incredible and enhances audience experience throughout. Lamb skilfully uses identifiable pop culture throughout to create connection with the audience and ultimately the story.

Theatre For Two – We Are Kilter

Theatre for Two is a new interactive experience by collaborative theatre company We Are Kilter.

One actor, one spectator: new micro-plays will tour London in a Covid-secure pop-up venue

Presented in a specially designed Covid-secure pop-up venue, We Are Kilter’s Theatre For Two is a series of personal, interactive meetings between actor and audience member.

These micro-plays will plunge the audience into a funny, surprising and sometimes peculiar experience. Each semi-improvised play will engage the audience in t...
