Action Hero

Hoke's Bluff

Hoke’s Bluff

Thu 16 Oct | 8.00pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 16+

Everything rests on this one free throw. On this one last shot. On this power play. On these last few seconds. Action Hero have got their game faces on. Bring it.

With a nostalgic yearning for the simplicity of a world that never really existed, Hoke’s Bluff meets its audience on the bleachers and tells them an underdog story that’s been told a million times before. By shifting and rearranging the trite narratives of high school storylines and inspiring locker room speeches, Action Hero use hackneyed formulas and cheap sentimentality to find out what it means to be a winner (on the inside).

Co-produced by China Plate and Warwick Arts Centre. Co-commissioned by Bristol Old Vic Ferment. Funded by Arts Council England. Action Hero are supported by Theatre Bristol’s Company Producer.

“The key to the show’s success is that it is all done with love. A very clever piece of theatre; a cracking night out”
