Broadway Baby chats to Wychwood, a show that promises something a little dark and different..
physical theatre is our thing… it’s the very basis of our work (with lashings of blood, guts and darkly comic moments).
Tell us about yourself….
We’re a relatively young theatre company that specialises in the dark and the twisted. We have been known to get a little grimy and have always indulged our fascination with the bleaker side of humanity… Well, this is going swimmingly isn’t it? No, come back. Stop slowly edging towards the exit… We won’t eat you…
Do you come here often?
This is our 5th time. We LOVE it.
What’s your passion?
Strong, aesthetically pleasing, challenging theatre that provides John McGrath’s “Bloody good night out” and grabs the audience by the face and never lets go.
What’s better. physical theatre or stand up comedy?
Physical theatre without a shadow of a doubt. That’s not to say that we don’t love stand up - we do. We normally all go on group trips to see as much comedy as we can. But to us, physical theatre is our thing… it’s the very basis of our work (with lashings of blood, guts and darkly comic moments).
Are you monogamous to EdFringe, or do you date other festivals?
We’re a one festival group. We’re pretty old fashioned that way.
Can we get a second date?
Of course darling, but next time, bring your friends, we’re hungry x
