STILL FLOATING

Date:Tue 25 Oct 2022
Time:7.30pm
Venue:J2 (seated show)
Price:Pay What You Feel (suggested £12.50)

Presented by Shôn Dale-Jones 

When someone suggests that Shôn should remount his 2006 Total Theatre award-winning hit show FLOATING (Barbican, Sydney Opera House) about the Isle of Anglesey floating away from mainland Britain, he is sure it isn’t what the world needs right now. 2006 is not 2022. As Shôn explains why he shouldn’t present the show we find out that sometimes going backwards helps us move forwards. Told by two-time Fringe First winner, this is a funny, uplifting and moving story, making the real and unreal fit together in one surprising whole.
