Holly Stoppit's company of fools, Beyond The Ridiculous, return to The Wardrobe Theatre for a 3-night celebration of the human condition!

“Both incredibly funny and incredibly moving.” The Huffington Post

Beyond The Ridiculous perform ‘Fooling’, a solo improvisation form, where the fools use their own real life stories, feelings and thoughts as source material, choosing from a range of performance techniques, including storytelling, character-work, clowning, physical theatre, movement and live music to create audaciously authentic, gob-smackingly resonant, instant theatre.

19th, 20th and 21st April 2019 

7.30pm start 

£10 tickets available through The Wardrobe Theatre

Featuring different performers every night.

Audience Reactions:

“I felt like people had gone inside my brain and acted it out to make me feel better and now I love everybody again.”

“Violently hilarious, insightful, meandering journey through the funniest, lightest, darkest corners of the deranged comedic mind.”

“A lot of joy. Amazing, REAL engaging theatre. We’re talking about what theatre sets out to do. The origins of theatre. Untranslated, original theatre.”

“There wasn’t a moment that wasn’t just right.”

Beyond The Ridiculous are a collective of individual theatre makers, teachers, directors and performers who regularly train fooling together with facilitator / dramatherapist Holly Stoppit.
