ChewBoy will be taking over the Lion and Unicorn Theatre in Kentish town with some of the weirdest, whackiest flavours from early-career companies, dynamic new writers of all ages and bold screen work from some of the most exciting filmmakers in town. Working in association with Gutter Street, Visability Film Festival, Proforca Theatre and Yellow Hat Productions amongst others to support the creation of integrated live performance events with a focus on the surreal, the abstract and experimentation.
So, buckle in friends. This one’s gonna be a bigg’un…
