Imagine Ryanair staging Beckett on a falling plane.
Presented by two charming hosts, Trigger Warning is a pre-show disclaimer to a show you may never see.
A jet-black absurdist comedy exploring the politics behind safe spaces and the culture of offence, pushing it to its logical breaking point and freewheeling along the tightrope between dance, clown, text and theatre.
Created by Marcelo Dos Santos and Natasha Nixon.
Developed with UCL Culture, Young Vic, Dare Festival, Shoreditch Town Hall. Recipient of the CPT / Jerwood Home Run commission.

“Absurdity shines through the vivid physical performances.” – The Stage
“The Directorial decisions by Natasha Nixon are very strong, as the performers use clowning and voice-overs to tremendous comedic effect.” – The Spy in the Stalls
“An absurd and humorous production that really pushes the limits of performance and theatre.” – Within Her Words
