Home of the Wriggler

Home of The Wriggler is a lo-fi sci-fi docu-drama constructed from a host of entangled and fractured stories of the people who built, bought and drove those things called cars. It is performed in the pulsing beams of car headlights, powered by the actors as they pedal bikes and turn hand cranks.

"Home of the Wriggler... is a clever, entertaining and ultimately moving piece of theatre"

The Commentators

Live and webcast commentary of everyday life. The Commentators are irrepressible and unstoppable, unwittingly hilarious and strangely compelling.

Time Critical
Two performers each have 25 minutes set on a chess clock - one minute for each of the 25 years of the life of Stan's Cafe.
One performer has the job of describing the last 25 years of world history, the other deals with the history of the company and its people.

Following its premiere as part of our 25th Anniversary party in 2016 Time Critical will be reworked for touring.
