There are no dates/times listed for this event
Drew McOnie is fast becoming one of the most sought-after choreographer's in the UK and is to launch his own theatre-dance company. This hot-blooded new Theatre-Dance company aims is to bridge the gap between musical theatre and pure dance audiences, bringing passionate and accessible dance productions to as many people as possible
For it's inaugural production, The McOnie Company presents Drunk, an intoxicating journey through some of history’s greatest tipples, and the victims who fall prey to their mood altering qualities.
Celebrating one of man’s greatest vices, Drunk is a wickedly delicious cocktail of theatre and dance, from the ‘Shots’, the stag do lads with an aggressive case of 'little man syndrome'; to ‘Vodka’, the ageing and diet conscious Russian actress living in the faded glamour of her past, Drunk is an irreverent and affectionate look at what the drink we order says about us.
With an original score from award-winning composer Grant Olding, a live band and a talented company of dancers that will pop your cork, Drunk is a frenetic dance-drama that explores the relationship we have with our ultimate drug of choice: alcohol. Get ready; this is theatre dance under the influence.

This year marks six decades since the first performance of John Osborne’s landmark play ‘Look Back In Anger’. The piece was responsible for introducing the country to a new social realism and a focus on the working classes in theatre. To mark the anniversary, The Finborough Theatre is staging one of Osborne’s more obscure pieces, ‘A Subject of Scandal and Concern’. We caught up with director Jimmy Walters.
