New theatre company be•wilder consists of international artists and graduates of RADA’s MA theatre programme, and are proud to present their debut production inspired by Brexit and the refugee crisis: Old Joe’s Fish ‘n’ Chill.
Set in a once glorious, all-inclusive club famous for its fish and chips, Old Joe’s has since been hit by a terrorist attack, left for dead. Yet it remains the only place left in the world where people from anywhere can come and go without a visa. A French drag queen, a German-Japanese gangster, a Finnish letter thief, a Czech dictator, a lungless Brazilian, an English terrorist and an invisible drifter meet for the first – and possibly last – time.
Sharing an impulse to provoke conversation and perform new, current works, the London based be•wilder heads a diverse ensemble of performers, with artists from countless cultural backgrounds and armed with a medley of varied skills, aiming to create a new language that is the sum of all their histories. Old Joe’s Fish ‘n’ Chill marks their professional foray into the theatre world, and we can’t wait to see what this talented bunch have up their sleeves.
