It was awarded ‘Show of the Week’ at London’s recent Vault Fringe Festival. Now Adam Scott-Rowley’s subversive, bare-arsed comedy, This Is Not Culturally Significant is going further underground.
Out of Spite Theatre is transferring the critically acclaimed, Edinburgh Fringe sell-out to The Bunker Theatre, Southwark, for a limited run.
Written, directed and performed by Adam Scott-Rowley (Anna; Macbeth; Lady Anna: All at Sea, Park Theatre and National Tour), This Is Not Culturally Significant is a brutally intense, darkly comic one-man show, performed totally nude, that reveals the bizarre, compulsive and eccentric nature of humanity.
This thunderous, high energy piece of theatre combines dark clowning and deeply grotesque parody to create a sharp political comment on contemporary society.
Scott-Rowley has created a show for thrill-seekers, putting himself in an eye-opening state of vulnerability. It is both uncomfortable to watch and mesmeric, leaving audiences’ emotions balancing on a knife edge.
From a mendacious spiritualist lecturer to a despondent American porn star on the brink of her retirement, he plays over 10 characters, taking the audience on a journey from emotional despair to helpless laughter.
Adam Scott-Rowley said: “I am utterly thrilled to be bringing This Is Not Culturally Significant to The Bunker Theatre after a successful run at Vault Festival.
“An old re-purposed underground car-park is the perfect setting for the ‘gallery of grotesques’ who make up the show.”
This Is Not Culturally Significant runs at the Bunker Theatre from May 15-June 3. .
