January 9 – 16, 2015 at Centaur Theatre
The Way You Tell Them
Written and performed by Rachel Mars
“Electrifying. A love letter to comedy from someone who wants it to mean something.”
Rachel Mars has always relied on humour. In her latest solo performance, she goes in search of what is beyond the gags. Turning the spotlight on the inner workings of comedy, The Way You Tell Them interrogates the desire and – sometimes uncontrollable – compulsion to be funny. What are we scared of? Where does the responsibility lie when going for a laugh?
Using real-life material, classic jokes and a wolf suit, Rachel weaves a thoughtful and provocative story that questions how we use and abuse humour. Directed by Jamie Wood, this beautifully sad and funny show sold out in London and at the Brighton Festival, and had a very well received run at Summerhall, Edinburgh 2013.
