Bloody Mess


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Experimental theatre legend Forced Entertainment tours the world extensively with its trademark mixture of deadpan poignancy and barely controlled chaos. Bloody Mess is a unique highlight in the group's diverse repertoire - a kind of channel-hopping Beckett play on a diet of speed and chips - offering Meltdown an exuberant, comical and borderline delinquent evening complete with heavy metal, fighting clowns, a nihilistic cheerleader, bad-tempered Rock gig roadies, a woman in a gorilla suit and a bloke that just wants to tell the story of the Big Big Bang.

Forced Entertainment is a group of six artists formed in 1984 and led by director and writer Tim Etchells. The Company continually develop new performance and theatre forms to find the most effective articulation of its ideas, to make work that is engaging, challenging and surprising, exploring the possibilities of what theatre might be.
