A Ship of Fools Theatre Company | U.K.

Welcome To Paradise is playing:

March 9th at 8pm

at the Tricklock Performance Laboratory
110 Gold Ave SW


Devised and Performed by Charles Shetcliffe & Mark Winstanley

Strap in for the Captain and Raoul’s playfully anarchic bouffon rollercoaster that ventures to the darkest corners of the grotto where the mould festers under the tree. Controversial theatre company Ship of Fools bring their unique brand of bouffon comedy to Albuquerque for two shows only. Expect danger, hilarity and horror as they tap dance back and forth over the lines of decency for your amusement. You will laugh. You may cry. You might even kill yourself!

“This is an expertly written and constructed show. The sudden change in tone is completely unexpected and yet the piece follows seamlessly through in its theme and story. It takes a lot of skill to engineer such a change in mood. The fact that a secular Christmas is held so dear to so many, makes it the perfect target for some really inclusive shaming.

Instead of a love letter to the most wonderful time of the year, what we get is a searingly clever pile of hate mail. Many shows use entertainment to illuminate the dark patches in humanity. Welcome to Paradise does it exceptionally well.”

“Charles Shetcliffe and Mark Winstanley are a wonderful double act, light, playful and moving, sometimes hilarious, sometimes thoroughly disturbing.

The experience of watching this show is like watching a Lars Von Trier film, not altogether pleasant, raw and violent and not something I want to do every night of the week but it feels essential and necessary, and has the real potential to shake up peoples’ lives.” –Jamie Wood. multi award winning Theatre Maker of Beating McEnroe, Oh No! and I am a tree.
