Come join us, share some scrumpy and stay awhile.

Let's found Arcadia in the theatre, a rural idyll amongst the city’s hubbub.

In the guise of some ragtag band, Uninvited Guests invent fakesongs and fakedances for our green and plastic land. They declaim hip Romantic poetry, conjure epic landscapes and attempt a return to some simpler life, a golden age. They give thanks for what we’ve got, and offer prayers to make better please, make better.

After immersing themselves in horror movies for their last show Schlock, Uninvited Guests are looking for some curative retreat. They take refuge in pastoral romance and the search for an impossible utopia.
