    SKINT: The Very Important Child

    This is a theatre show. Well, it's a lecture. But it starts with a song.  And then everything goes horrible.

    Ever wondered how you got this way? Why you shout at the TV? Why you turn into a child when you’re hungry? Or did the starry-eyed 20-year-old you were turn into a kind, hardened adult. WHY? Christopher and Virginia are here to tell you about a special theory of how your ego develops. 

    And we ABSOLUTELY PROMISE this show doesn’t descend into an orgy of violence and sobbing... 


    Funny, arty, contemporary theatre for grown-up babies of all ages. This is about throwing your toys out of the pram. Just like you, this show is very angry sometimes, and often very quiet. It has equal amounts of prettiness, cleverness and shouting...ness. We can also promise that you will learn something about yourself. And it’s only an hour long.

    NB: This is proper sitting-down theatre. No audience participation, no dressing up, and you can have a beer. And the show is really funny and cool.


    Please note: This event takes place at Canada Water Culture Space, 21 Surrey Quays Road, SE16 7AR.
