“Two's company, three's bedlam”

The 18th century bedlam houses are full and so the ‘ships of fools’ are born. En-route to America our hapless victims find themselves running for the lifeboats when they come under attack and their ship - The Sea Venture - is sunk. As the icy dawn breaks and with only a single oar they find themselves alone, and going around in circles. Our brave souls battle the elements, each other and a leaking lifeboat. Based in fact and with a heavy dose of fiction Sink or Swim is an insanely comic tale of tales and three men’s maddening struggles at sea.

Following a 'work-in-progress' performance at last year's Everyword, Spike Theatre bring their hilarious new show to the Playhouse Studio ahead of a national tour. Featuring an original music score, inflatable sculpture, clown and bold storytelling.

Spike has been touring comedy theatre across the UK and Europe since 1997, and Sink or Swim is the company’s 20th original show.
