Straight from an award-winning tour of Australia, inimitable theatremaker Stuart Bowden presents the première if his new solo work: Wilting In Reverse at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Bowden has previously won hearts with his off-beat, touchingly beautiful productions She Was Probably Not A Robot, The Beast, The World Holds Everyone Apart (Apart From Us) and his acclaimed collaborations Dr Brown and His Singing Tiger and The Lounge Room Confabulators. He has received a host of awards around the world including the Underbelly Award and has received nominations for Best Theatre Show at Adelaide Fringe, Best Independent Theatre Writing and Best Independent Theatre Performer at the Melbourne Green Room Awards. Bowden’s most recent show Before Us was the five star hit of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe and has since played to sold out audiences in London, Oslo, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne. 

Bowden’s unique style of DIY theatre blends “live music, bizarre storytelling and perfect physical comedy” (Edinburgh Guide) with “a vulnerability that is not often seen in comedy” (Broadway Baby). This show features the notes of “gorgeous melancholia” (The Scotsman) that audiences know and love from Stuart Bowden.
