Presented by Jamie Wood
When John Lennon fell in love with Yoko Ono the world was shocked. When John and Yoko claimed that their love was politics and art, the world squirmed. When Lennon was assassinated the world mourned.
Following the success of CPT-developed 2013 smash Beating McEnroe, Jamie Wood returns with a work-in-progress of his new show. Playing amongst the enigmatic instructions of Yoko Ono's artworks, in the shadow of Lennon's death, O No! is a psychedelic ride, a wonky homage to the woman damned for destroying the Beatles. A show about reckless optimism, high art and what we might yet have to learn from the hippies.

"One of the oddest, most original and entertaining hours you’re likely to spend in a theatre" – Exeunt on Beating McEnroe
