From their Australian tour:

***** The Adelaidian
“Take your Nan, take your mates, take the kids. This is one for everyone.”

**** The Advertiser
“This is top drawer slapstick that will leave you wanting an encore”

***** Fringefeed
“This might be one of my favourite fringe shows ever of any season, anywhere in the world.”

“Scotland! is a largely non-verbal, physical comedy show using elements such as clown, mime, impressive and complex physical percussion and some truly perfect comedic timing to tell a story. I’m not quite sure what the story was (there was a fish, maybe a stag and definitely a battle somewhere), but honestly, I don’t care.

To attend Scotland! is to have just plain fun – it is an absurd, ridiculous and masterful romp through the Scottish Highlands and culture. My cheeks and sides were actually hurting with laughter afterwards. Get yourself a ticket for this one if at all possible, because it is not to be missed. I will definitely be going again and taking friends.”

And closer to home:

***** Brighton and Hove News
“The trio manage to have the entire audience in tears (of laughter)… they are masterful”

​***** Theatre Box (At Mission Theatre, Bath)
“Scotland! is one of those performances you could watch every night for a week and still go back for more.”

“Sam Dugmore, Jonathan Tilley and Oliver Nilsson, whom all trained at École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq (A.K.A one of the best clown schools in the world), created the perfect dynamic on stage; their individual clowns contrasted one another brilliantly and each personality was equally displayed (and loved). Also, their ability to work as an ensemble and fluidly react together was flawless.

SCOTLAND! is one of those performances you could watch every night for a week and still go back for more. The lighthearted storyline (with a slight turn at the end) will have you exploring the hills of Scotland (from the warmth of your seat), falling in love with the utterly bonkers antics of The Latebloomers, and crying with laughter. Why would you miss it?!”

Tickets: £10 full, £8 concessions, £5 under 16, £25 family (2 + 2).
