THIS IS NOT CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT
★★★★★ - INDEPENDENT "Deeply sad in parts, this performance is a 55 minute scream for help, and it sounds beautiful."
Out of Spite Theatre presents the critically acclaimed, two-time Edinburgh Fringe and London transfer sell-out, THIS IS NOT CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT.
A brutally intense, darkly comic one-man show that unveils the bizarre, compulsive and eccentric nature of humanity. This thunderous, high energy piece of theatre is performed entirely nude and combines Adam Scott-Rowley's method of 'The Sensitised Actor', with deeply grotesque bouffon to create a sharp political comment on contemporary society.
Written and Performed by Adam Scott-Rowley

PEOPLE WHO NEED PEOPLE
MIRO MAGAZINE - "There are no words to People Who Need People and yet, as a production, it is brimming with emotional promise."
Out of Spite Theatre in association with The Production Exchange and supported by Arts Council England, Shoreditch Town Hall and Jeremy Zimmermann Casting present PEOPLE WHO NEED PEOPLE.
PEOPLE WHO NEED PEOPLE is a 50 minute piece of theatre in which an audience watches the repeated routine comings and goings of people from varied historical time periods and walks of life at one limbo-esque train station. The piece is non-linear and occasionally highly physical.
A beautiful soundscape, intricate lighting, heightened physicality and juxtaposed imagery brings this slow-revealing piece to its fruition. There is no dialogue. PEOPLE WHO NEED PEOPLE portrays a haunting, humorous and poignant display of the human condition. An intense slow-burner with a theatrical climax like no other.
Produced for Out of Spite Theatre by Adam Scott-Rowley and The Production Exchange by Colin Blumenau

YOU ARE GOING TO DIE
Adam Scott-Rowley (creator of the award-winning THIS IS NOT CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT) presents YOU ARE GOING TO DIE.
Performed entirely naked, YOU ARE GOING TO DIE is a nail-biting 50 minute descent into the loneliness, pain and trauma of our time. A meditation on the surreal, corporeal, disgusting, shocking and of course - hilarious - themes of being alive in the 21st century.
Join Adam Scott-Rowley in a shared purge, as he morphs, snaps and slithers his way through the essences, characters, emotions, feelings, creatures and archetypes of everything you love and hate about your existence. This show will illuminate the darkest corners of the human psyche, kindle compassion in the most unlikely of places, and allow us all to reemerge from these depths together with kindness, humour, humility and light.
Due to run at VAULT Festival 2022 but coming to a theatre soon!
