Following a highly successful run at VAULT Festival, where it was awarded ‘Show of the Week’, Out of Spite Theatre presents the transfer of the critically acclaimed, Edinburgh Fringe sell-out, This Is Not Culturally Significant.
Written, directed and performed by Adam Scott-Rowley (Anna; Macbeth; Lady Anna: All at Sea, Park Theatre and National Tour), This Is Not Culturally Significant. is a brutally intense, darkly comic one-man show that reveals the bizarre, compulsive and eccentric nature of humanity. This thunderous, high energy piece of theatre combines dark clowning and deeply grotesque bouffon to create a sharp political comment on contemporary society.
Performed entirely nude, Scott-Rowley has created a show for thrill-seekers, putting himself in an eye-opening state of vulnerability. It is both uncomfortable to watch and mesmeric, leaving audiences’ emotions balancing on a knife edge. From a mendacious Spiritualist Lecturer to a despondent American Porn Star on the brink of her retirement, over 10 characters take the audience on a journey from emotional despair to helpless laughter.
Adam Scott-Rowley comments, I am utterly thrilled to be bringing This Is Not Culturally Significant. to The Bunker Theatre after a successful run at VAULT Festival. An old repurposed underground car-park is the perfect setting for the ‘gallery of grotesques’ who make up the show.
This Is Not Culturally Significant. is not just a surreal and hilarious piece; this is political theatre at its best. (London Box Office)
