STOVEPIPE

Sold out

A HighTide Production in collaboration with the National Theatre and The Bush Theatre.

For every guy trying to be a pro, there's a psychopath. And for every psychopath, there's a cowboy.

When a mercenary goes missing en route to Iraq, his closest surviving friend embarks on a hunt across the post-war Middle East

Stovepipe is an indoor promenade performance at a location in Shepherds Bush; audiences observe the unravelling of this original drama whilst being guided through five-star hotel bars, seedy brothels, and war-torn desert landscapes.

The venue for Stovepipe performances is: West 12, The Broadway, Shepherds Bush W12. There is a bar and cloakroom onsite; please follow the signs within the centre.
