OutlierPowerful poetics and exhilarating music

The line between speech and music is seamless
“The sky was painfully big, but our worlds were small, our lives little. So when we found each other in the muddle of it all, that feeling of belonging was addictive.”
Mal, Ama, Lewis and Oskar have grown up together; hedonistically charging through life in rural Devon. Living from party to party, they're railing against the stories that have been written for them as they stand at the precipice of adulthood. But all the space can be suffocating, and it’s tough sometimes – feeling so low in a place so beautiful.
The powerful poetics of Malaika Kegode and exhilarating music of Bristol band Jakabol combine with dynamic animation in this moving, autobiographical gig-theatre show directed by Jenny Davies.
Genre-defying and hopeful, Outlier explores the impact of isolation, addiction and friendship on young people coming of age in the often-forgotten places.
Book a sofa!
For Outlier we're getting all cosy and have replaced some of our seating in the pit with two-seater sofas! So, you can either come along with a pal, or you'll be able to stretch those legs to the max (you'll have to buy two tickets for that though, soz).
These can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0117 987 7877 or by selecting the "pit" when booking online.
