O No!

1 Mar 2019


Anarchic art clown and Fringe First winner Jamie Wood brings his acclaimed show O No! to Hull Truck Theatre on Friday 1 March. One of the most talked about shows of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015, O No! is a unique, magical experience that escapes definition and breaks boundaries.

In 1962 a woman met a man in a queue for a dance. She never wanted to get married. She was a freedom loving hippy who wanted to travel the world. Instead, she got pregnant. Sometimes she talks about regretting not carrying on dancing. In 1962 a woman called Yoko published 500 copies of a book of art instructions: poetic propositions that celebrate the power of the imagination. It inspired a man called John to leave his wife, his child and his band. To the outside world he seemed to have lost himself, or his mind.

Disarmingly confessional, playful and highly visual, the show invites the audience to delve into the complexity of human interactions while exploring the cost of intimacy. A psychedelic ride and a wonky homage to the woman damned for destroying the Beatles, O No! borrows Yoko Ono’s art instructions to ask whether falling in love is always catastrophic.

“Fractious, hilarious and punctuated by undeniable beauty” ★★★★★ The Stage

“…like being sucked down a rabbit hole full of joy.”  ★★★★ Fest Magazine

“a warm, endearing show that sends up and pays homage to Ono” ★★★★ The Guardian
