Past Production – The Texas Sharpshooter


An Improvised play about financial crisis
Created and Directed by Sebastian Armesto & Dudley Hinton
Performed during the 2015 General Election
“Risk. Variables. Uncertainty.”

07 – 09 May 2015
Arcola Theatre

Following the smash hits, Moby-Dick and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, the world premiere of Simple8’s new production arrives at Arcola Theatre.

Different every night, and always the width of a five pound note away from calamity – anything can happen in this precarious and highly topical show, which tots up the value of stories and the cost of economic catastrophe.

“Three cheers to a brave young company”
