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.
Performed entirely nude, Adam 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 impossible to turn away from, 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.
Written, directed and performed by Scott-Rowley, 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 high energy piece of theatre combines dark clowning and deeply grotesque bouffon to create a sharp political comment on contemporary society. 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 plays The Bunker from 15 May – 3 June. For more information and to book tickets, please see the website.
