"Without freedom of speech, I might be in the swamp."
Improvised Theatre inspired by The Fool, Award-winning Jonathan Brown takes you on a wildly subversive, newly-discovered-each-performance journey, within-the-moment plunges into worlds you've been told "DO NOT EXIST!" (and to shut up about them).
Jonathan Brown, Best Male Performer 2013, Best New Play 2012, Best Male Performer nominee 2007, Best New Play (shortlist) 2013, Brighton Fringe.
"The beacons are lit... the cry has gone out. The mother's legs are as wide and high as mountains. Here comes the child who will repel the invaders... And that's not even the most surreal moment in this show. Award-winning... performer Jonathan Brown returns... with an hour of comic mysticism - a trippy ramble through birth, death and politicians that escalate and topple into each other. Clutching a stick with a fox's head carved into it, ...part jester, part cabbie... he's an off-kilter wild-man, (with) nature-filled musings like elemental myths you might hear when huddled around a fire - hypnotically unpredictable - just peering over the dizzying edge of Brown's sad, funny, mad world is a rush." The Stage, 2015.
"Thank you for your show. I loved it a brilliant piece of story telling. It was great to be part of something intimate, engaging, moving, challenging, compassionate and funny. Better than pretty much anything I have seen in the theatre over the last couple of years. Afterwards, I felt that I had been taken on a journey and come back knowing something new - which is just what theatre should be like." Andrew Miller, co-director, Wishworks Puppet Theatre Company.
"We are very lucky to have an actor like Jonathan Brown on our doorstep" Britt Forsberg
"If you ever get a chance to see this guy GO! Fantastic improvised one man show – very intimate, inventive and honest performance." Ranmal Burkmar, Audience.
