Keyword Chaos at the Warren

We’ve selected evocative phrases from the Warren programme.

Click on the ones that intrigue you and you might just find the show you need to see…

“He has seen many things, and done worse. But is he alive or dead? Are we slaves to past actions, or do they make us stronger?”

An actual artificial intelligence-based chatbot tries to pass as human as it sends lines to one of the improvisers via an earpiece. Our impossible and hilarious challenge is to justify physical and emotional lines that make no sense at all.

“Q. What happens when you move a 12-year-old from Basingstoke to Zambia? A. She swims.”

“We guarantee to erase your memories of childhood and replace them with better ones.”

“See the world through the eyes of the honeybee. A comedy set in a world of climate destruction and disappearing bees.”

“She begins to remember a time when life was simpler – before lonely nights on Tinder and existential doubt – a time of sun, certainty and the holy spirit. But how much masturbating on a toilet is she willing to sacrifice for the sweet caress of community?”

“Get ready for an activity-filled weekend with two men who wish they were your dad (but who are glad he went to prison.) Who needs a father figure when you can have two? Hey, what’s with all these “where’s my real dad” faces? Strap in for the trip of a lifetime with the men who make your mum happy!”

“Enter a space where the rules of gravity are bent and broken.”

He turns his everyday routine into a life bursting with wonder and music. The funny and moving story of an extraordinary mind gone rogue.
