Autumn 2015 @ Theatre Ad Infinitum…
Odyssey in 2015
And there’s more… in Norway
Following six years of continuous touring around the UK and the world, we’re now beginning to get excited about our Norwegian language version of our Odyssey, opening in September in Norway.
Rehearsals are well underway in Oslo with Silje Torp who’s working with us to transform this one-man ‘tour de force’ into a one-woman hurricane. We can’t wait to share it!
Theatre Ad Infinitum reinvent the timeless Greek myth. One actress. One hour. One man’s epic quest to reunite with his family and seek his bloody revenge. Passionate, highly physical, and poignant storytelling brings this breathtaking adventure to life. A journey that will ignite the imagination and awaken the senses…
If you’re in Norway, join us!

A very brief Appearance at EdFringe 2015
After 7 running years of performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we were looking forward to having a year off. But then we were commissioned to Write and Perform a One-Off Short Play for Northern Stage at Edfringe.
On the 22nd August co-artistic directors, George and Nir, made a flying visit to Edfringe to take part in Northern Stage’s Here is the New From Over There (Over There is the News From Here). We wrote a piece called ‘Porridge’ a semi-autobiographical play exploring Britain’s historical role in the ongoing Palestinian and Israeli conflict.
Here is the News continues and you can catch it if you’re in Edinburgh every night at Summerhall at 11.10pm. It’s a brilliant evening, and it’s different every time with contributions from the likes of Chris Thorpe, Daniel Bye and David Grieg…

Pink Mist | Bristol Old Vic
Reviews for Pink Mist
Co-Artistic Director George Mann has started his part-time position as Associate Director at Bristol Old Vic working on a new play, Pink Mist, by award winning writer, Owen Sheers. As Associate Director and Choreographer, George worked with Director, John Retallack, to bring Sheer’s beautiful dramatic poem to the stage. Press night finished with standing ovations, and now the reviews are out:
“Beautifully performed by its young cast, John Retallack and George Mann’s production finds a physical language to match the brawny verve of Sheers’ poetry … Heartbreaking.”
– The Guardian ★★★★
“Standing ovations are rare enough that one lasted three curtain calls is worth mentioning. Pink Mist may be the most important play of the year. It is certainly one of the best.”
– What’s On Stage ★★★★★
It only plays until 11 July 2015 at Bristol Old Vic and it’s selling out – so hurry if you want to see it!
