Jamie Wood's tender clowning masterpiece returns!
A psychedelic ride, and a wonky homage to the woman damned for destroying the Beatles, O No! borrows Yoko Ono’s art instructions to ask whether falling in love is always catastrophic. A sell-out success and one of the most talked about shows of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015.
It’s about reckless optimism, avant-garde art and what we might yet have to learn from the hippies.
“…Like being sucked down a rabbit hole full of joy.”
“A slice of sweet absurdity that made me smile from beginning to end.”
★★★★ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
“Fractious, hilarious and punctuated by undeniable beauty, Jamie Wood’s tribute to Yoko Ono is a thing of mischief and magic.”
★★★★★ The Stage
“Perfect as an oasis in the midst of a hectic festival, and a genuinely different experience.”
“By the end, Wood has got the entire audience making music and probably doubled the amount of happiness floating around…”
★★★★ The Guardian
