“Elegant and visceral, not to mention fearless, hilarious, totally horrifying and immensely uplifting.” Carousel of Fantasies

In collaboration with Lewis Gibson.

Bring us the troubles of the world, this city's crises and the hope in your hearts.

In these times of crisis we make a collective ministry with you, our society of friends. Possessed by the spirits of corporate fat cats, cabinet ministers and media tycoons, we invoke the demons of the day, in order to banish them forever.

Each show will draw on the day’s news and will be about whatever matters to you. We’ll speak the unspeakable and do the unthinkable for you.



Commissioned and developed by Theatre Bristol, Bristol Old Vic and BAC. Funded by Arts Council England. Developed with the support of Beaford Arts.

Critical Acclaim for Make Better Please

"[Make Better Please] knows it can't right the wrongs it presents but – as a pure cycle of catharsis – the piece has a direct impact on the way each of us feels. It tries to send us back into that broken world with a newfound energy." Guardian Theatre Blog
