WHY OTHER PEOPLE P!SS YOU OFF
 

Mirror, semen, manoeuvre… 

HAM THEATRE bring their award winning play to The Bridge House Theatre - a fast paced comedy with bits of physical theatre, music and singing, set around a group of strangers hoping to #avoidthepoints at a Speed Awareness course. 

Characters along for the ride include disciples from The Church of Right of Way (HIGHWAY-LUJAH!) and drivers you've probably fingered :0 In this rude & theatrical piece The Hammers sort-of-guarantee that you’ll laugh, cry, and learn some of the Highway Code you really should know already (just think of the penalty fines you'll save?)

Belt up and take a fully leaded look at how psychology affects performance behind the wheel, and witness the breaking of some rather personal, as well as legal limits.

HAM THEATRE have previously performed sell-out shows, winning multiple Brighton & Hove Arts Council Drama Awards, and Why Other People P!ss You Off won Best Comedy and Best Unpublished Play at the 2022 Maidenhead Drama Festival.
