WTF Wednesday presents Stacy Makishi: The Comforter

In Association with Word Of Warning

The Comforter is a rite of passage that reclaims spirituality and proposes a new perspective on church.
  • Venue: The Aldridge Studio

Wed 21 November | Tickets available soon

Part ritual; part prayer; part rowdy revivalist rally, The Comforter is a rite of passage that reclaims spirituality and proposes a new perspective on church. Exchanging psalms and sacrament for 80’s/90’s pop culture, it draws inspiration from Twin Peaks and Ingmar Bergman and throws a kiss to George Michael.

The Comforter follows the powerfully moving and absurdly humorous Vesper Time (“a gorgeous hymn…for fearlessness, truth and love” Exeunt) that toured the UKTogether they make up the first two in a three-show series about the Holy Trinity. The Comforter is the Holy Ghost of the trio and it asks the question: ‘What am I unwilling to feel?’

Stacy is a multi-award winning artist who has been making work for 30 years. Join her to explore – through meditation, ritual and disco – what it means to be fully alive and fully human.

Co-commissioned by The Yard Theatre, Marlborough Theatre, Norwich Arts Centre and Colchester Arts Centre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and produced by Artsadmin.

WTF Wednesdays are a brand new spanking series of evenings celebrating cutting edge contemporary theatre for the most creatively curious of cats.  

Bag a ticket. Grab a drink. Who ever said asking ‘WT actual F’ was a bad thing? 

This is a Pay a What You Decide event. WTF? Reserve your tickets, come along, see the show and decide how much you want to pay afterwards!  

As this is a Pay What You Decide event, we know some people who book tickets won't turn up on the night so we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right but we advise you arrive early to ensure you get a seat! We don't often have to disappoint people but if we can't fit you in we will try to offer you tickets to another show in The Lowry that night.
