Scotlaaaand! Join us for a wild ride, with rhythm, body percussion, singing, stomping, clowning and the spirit of Scotland!

An hilarious, high-energy three-man physical comedy. The show is performed with no set, no lighting effects and no recorded sound, just with three wooden stools on an empty stage. The trio are ludicrously good, performing with mime, vocal sound effects (aka weird noises), absurdly complicated rhythmical sequences with body percussion and well-known Scottish folk songs sung with gusto. The show is nonsensical, odd and joyously enthusiastic.

The Latebloomers is an award-winning theatre company based in Bristol, UK. An hilarious three-man physical theatre group, they are all graduates of the Jacques Lecoq International Theatre School in Paris. Sam is from Adelaide, Oliver is from Sweden and Jon is from London. 

Scotland! has already toured to Adelaide Fringe,  Brighton Fringe, Bath Fringe, Prague Fringe, Festival Theatre à Taulignan, Norway Fringe and Paris Fringe.

Come join us for a wild and wacky night at the theatre!
