15: Traverse Theatre

Show in Google Maps


The first rule of making art is don't respond to your critics. Soho Theatre, London, and Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne, bring together three masters of smart, spiky, political performance in an international supergroup of Zoe Coombs Marr, Ursula Martinez and Adrienne Truscott, to prove they, too, are not afraid to talk out of their arses. 'A postmodern tour de force' **** (List on Zoe Coombs Marr, Barry Award winner). 'Funny, tongue-in-cheek, heartfelt and emotional' **** (Guardian on Ursula Martinez, Olivier Award winner). 'Brilliantly bold' **** (Times on Adrienne Truscott, Edinburgh Comedy Award winner).
