They find themselves thrown into absurd and ludicrous situations and forced to confront a few home truths, on an enlightening mission that will reignite past memories and dig up some well-buried secrets…


Folio Theatre is a West-Country-based touring company, born from a desire to create exciting stories set in the region and promote emerging writers.

Folio is the sister company of London-based Viscera Theatre, whose last show ‘Let’s Get Visceral’ enjoyed a sell-out run at the Old Vic Tunnels.
