People Show have been leading the UK’s alternative theatre scene for more than 50 years, and their latest show, People Show 137, proves that they’ve lost none of their “essential” edge. We’ve rounded up review highlights below. Time to get booking!
People Show 137: God Knows How Many runs at London’s Southwark Playhouse for a limited season from 5 to 29 February 2020, with a press night on 7 February. It then tours to Bristol, Lancaster and Yorkshire.
From the troubadours of the Parisian boulevards of yesteryear to today’s global corporate domination, People Show 137: God Knows How Many, will take you precisely nowhere. But on the way, you will laugh, possibly cry, and feel a sense of what it is we might be doing here.
Emil Wolk, George Khan, Mark Long – People Show stalwarts – and Bill Palmer of Avanti Display, come together for a new show. Years of tumbling, verbal and musical gymnastics are taken to the next dimension. A darker dimension where the momentary nature of life is confronted and challenged.
Absolutely loved @PeopleShow People Show 137 at the Southwark Playhouse. Proof theatre doesn’t need a posh set and that mannequins are evil. Theatre meets 80s alternative cabaret. Not suitable for those scared of tennis balls!
