Richard Gadd

Unwrapped: a festival of comedy, cabaret and drag
Curated by Victoria Falconer

A work in progress about obsession, misinterpretation, and the parameters of what society will let you get away with.

Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner and Total Theatre Award Nominee Richard Gadd has a chilling story to tell about how one fleeting mistake led to a chain-reaction of torment in his life that lasts to this day. Don’t expect laughs. But expect some strong themes.

“Frankly magnificent”
