    O NO!!

    THU 3 MAR | Full £10 Conc £6 | 7.30pm  | AGE 16 Plus

    A psychedelic ride, and a wonky homage to the woman damned for destroying the Beatles, O No! borrows Yoko Ono’s art instructions to ask whether falling in love is always catastrophic.

    A sell-out success and one of the most talked about shows of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015.

    Funny and surprising in equal measure this show from a multi-award winning theatre maker, is about reckless optimism, avant-garde art and what we might yet have to learn from the hippies.

    Supported by Arts Council England, Ovalhouse, CPT, National Theatre Studio and Physical Fest Liverpool

    “Fractious, hilarious and punctuated by undeniable beauty, Jamie Wood’s tribute to Yoko Ono is a thing of mischief and magic”
