Synopsis


Greg Wohead

Call It A Day


"If you're lost, you can look and you will find me

Time after time"


Two couples; one liberal, one conservative. One progressive, one traditional. One faithless, one faithful.


Ten years ago, on a freezing snowy day in the USA, Greg Wohead and his then partner spent an afternoon with an Amish couple.


Call it a Day is about that unlikely encounter. What unfolds on stage is a strange, surreal, part-improvised reliving of that meeting again and again and again and again.


Following Comeback Special (The Times), The Ted Bundy Project (The Guardian) and Celebration Florida (The Stage) Call It A Day is Greg Wohead's newest show.


Featuring an unpicking of Cyndi Lauper's 1983 hit Time After Time and interruptions from 1985 Amish-themed thriller Witness (starring Harrison Ford), Call It A Day is a kaleidoscopic examination of the impossibility of truly understanding one another.

Plastic Soul

Plastic Soul tracks the rise and fall of a mythical performer. Their image. Their identity. Forever morphing.


A mix between gig, dance and documentary, Seke Chimutengwende, who has worked with DV8, Lost Dog and Fabulous Beast, steps up to the mic in a series of increasingly demanding and outlandish roles.


As the transformations escalate, what we thought was underneath it all - the human soul - becomes ever more part of the act.


Plastic Soul is an experiment in metamorphosis that takes us to the limits of what we can become.
