Whilst that might sound like a strange wrestling match you’d find in fight club, we promise this is still, essentially, the same show. Apart from this time, we’re collaborating with the Bristol Cathedral.

Wild Men, is the story of 4 ex-choristers from Bristol Cathedral who travel to France to fight. Whilst the core themes of the show are staying the same, it is changing quite a bit – We’re moving it forward so we begin in France, the cast number has gone from 9-6 and this time, we have a choir.

“In a quiet corner of Bristol Cathedral is a plaque listing eight names. This memorial stands in recognition of the Cathedral’s own choristers who fought and died in World War One. One hundred years later, the plaque was the inspiration for Hotel Echo, a young theatre company affiliated with Bristol Old Vic’s Made In Bristol programme, who devised a piece imagining their stories. After successful performances at Bristol Old Vic and on tour, the production is in the process of being redeveloped in order to be performed exclusively in Bristol Cathedral, with the collaboration of the current Bristol Cathedral choristers.”
