Ahir Shah: Control

Date:Fri 26 Jan
Time:8pm
Venue:J2
Price:£13.50

In an age of global socio-political turmoil, Shah presents a show about freedom, fascism, history, hope, resistance, and milk.

Ahir's last show enjoyed packed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Soho Theatre, and a national tour. In it, he theorised that we were being tugged in contradictory directions by a potential brighter future and resurgent worst of the past. He's currently trying to work out how to build that future in a time when the past appears to be winning. He's got loads of jokes about it.
