Presented by Idiot Child
Part of Bristol Old Vic's Studio Walkabout Season

What if how I feel about the world and myself at 4am, what if that is the truth? What if I get killed in an avalanche and most people are slightly relieved that they now don't have to read my novel? What if the only reason the plane is able to stay in the sky is because I am thinking really encouraging thoughts about the wings?

What if the plane falls out of the sky? is a playful and unusual tale of fear, anxiety, and the idiosyncratic and frankly absurd strategies we employ to manage our sense of impending doom. Join the residents of Fear Camp as they tackle their manifold neuroses with gleeful enthusiasm and complimentary in-flight drinks and snacks.

A hugely enjoyable oddball tale"

A beautifully written and performed dark comedy"

@IdiotChildCo | #Whatiftheplanefallsoutofthesky

Last year we began redevelopment works to transform our King Street entrance into a welcoming, vibrant space and build a brand new Studio theatre designed by award-winning architects Haworth Tompkins. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, and we're taking our Studio programme on Walkabout around Bristol!

What If The Plane Falls Out Of The Sky? continues our Studio Walkabout Season, inspired by the city-wide partnerships created during the Theatre's first phase of refurbishment in 2011 which saw us stage productions in other venues including Coram Boy with our friends at Colston Hall.

Please note the venue of this show is The Loco Klub. We hope you will join us as we stretch our legs across the city and continue to enjoy our brilliant studio programme.
