It is a wonderful piece of devised and improvised theatre, heart warming and sad, technically simple but brilliant, with a skilled and talented cast.” (Three Weeks Editors Award)

‘a lecture in weird humour, delivered by an expert... a natural clown’ A Younger Theatre

O No! 
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. 
Funny and surprising in equal measure this show from a multi-award winning theatre maker, is about reckless optimism, avant-garde art and what we might yet have to learn from the hippies.

“Fractious, hilarious and punctuated by undeniable beauty, Jamie Wood’s tribute to Yoko Ono is a thing of mischief and magic" 
***** The Stage 
 
“By the end, Wood has got the entire audience making music and probably doubled the amount of happiness floating around Edinburgh.” 
**** The Guardian 
 
"This isn't wacky for wacky's sake. It's oppositional and fierce and idealistic."

a seductively bleak comedy with a tender heart

"An original script, fluid direction and gripping performances ensure that the story itself is never overshadowed by Spike's desire to entertain. You walk away with the sense of extreme human endeavour intact but with an added understanding of what could drive any of us to such craziness" Total Theatre

"The surreal illogic with which this theatre of visions unfurls is dreamlike but far from disengaged"

"a theatre that stirs the heart and nourishes the soul"

“There is no escape from this glorious bloody mess" The Guardian

As a devisor/performer I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of other artist’s processes. I’ve always found this an invaluable experience that has fed directly back into my own work, both in terms of specific techniques and in terms of expanding and challenging my sense of what theatre can be.
