Following a 5 star sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, intense and darkly comic one-man show This Is Not Culturally Signiﬁcant is transferring to the VAULT Festival 2017.
This Is Not Culturally Signiﬁcant unveils the bizarre, compulsive and eccentric nature of humanity. Over ten characters are portrayed; from a pathologically lying classics professor to a despondent American porn star on the brink of her retirement. This is a thunderous, high energy piece of theatre combining dark clown and deeply grotesque bouffon which holds up a mirror to the often unnoticed absurdities of human life – and contains full frontal male nudity throughout.
Out of Spite Theatre was founded by Adam Scott-Rowley in 2014 and strives to create confrontational, unsettling and high-intensity theatre. This Is Not Culturally Signiﬁcant is the company's ﬁrst show, which aims to unmask the superﬁciality of our society's expectations, desires and collective ego.
Theatre N16 is a trailblazing theatre company, dedicated to creating a creative hub where new and existing works can be explored and pushed into new realms. Theatre N16 is proud of their commitment to the welfare of creatives, operating under an Equity Fringe Agreement. This promoting and nurturing of talent means that Theatre N16 is a bastion for development within the context of a society in which the arts are increasingly struggling to stay afloat.

★★★★★ “Raw, crude, harrowing (…) with a truly Beckettian feel to it, this piece unites the comic and the tragic, the real and the absurd, with a remarkable intensity” ThreeWeeks Edinburgh
