A Ship Of FoOls Theatre Company
"This shocking and energetic piece of theatre shows bravery and talent." **** WhatsOnStage
A Ship of Fools Theatre Company are fast building a reputation as a company whose work is dangerous and unpredictable. We will have you crying with laughter one minute and squirming in your seat the next.
We play on the edge of decency to excite and horrify our audiences and inevitably confront them with the darker aspects of our common humanity.
“...The cleverest, darkest and funniest comedy
I think I’ve ever seen.”
Jonny Unknown, Thom Fooles House Party
What's this Bouffon?
The Bouffon are the unclean, the great unwashed, kicked out of society by the great and the good, in medieval times they were the leper, the gypsy, the jew, the cripple, and the heretic priest. Today they are the tramps and bag lady's living on the fringes of society. They are the people who watch society and come back to point the finger and laugh whilst showing us who we really are.
You're gonna love them.
“A Ship of Fools Theatre company made us laugh, catch ourselves laughing and then hate ourselves for doing so. Their theatre is exciting, thrilling, challenging and ultimately very human. I can’t recommend them enough and look forward to seeing more of their work on the touring networks.”
Adam Pownall, Artistic programme and participation manager, Lincoln Drill Hall
