This is your chance to get you and your work seen.
Cast Iron Theatre's Edinburgh Festival Fringe's 2017 Infallibles Award nominated show features Heather-Rose Andrews and is written and directed by Andrew Allen.
Cacophony mixes dance, mime and clowning to conjure up a hubbub of surreal, delightful and darkly comic characters all inspired by the theme of sound. In the 60 minute show Heather-Rose Andrews creates multiple, cartoonish characters using bonkers physicality, delightful vocalised sound effects and a few household props.
Debuting in London at the wonderful Draper Hall, the ticket to the show includes an after show meal and mingle.
