Following three critically acclaimed shows and straight from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Steve Bugeja has hit the road for his third and largest UK tour. His new show, Almost, will arrive at Hull Truck Theatre on Friday 26 October.
As seen on Love Island: Aftersun (ITV2) and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Steve has also been making a name for himself internationally as he has been invited to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival twice, appearing on both ABCTV’s Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow and on Comedy Up Late.
Steve Bugeja’s Almost has been praised by several national publications including The Guardian who described it as “an eye for comic detail that’s all his own”. Chortle: The UK Comedy Guide said “Drum tight, as if polished by a sitcom writers’ room to cram as many jokes in as humanly possible”, and The Scotsman mused “Plentiful jokes and compelling storytelling”.
A pioneering theatre with a unique Northern Voice, locally rooted, global in outlook, inspiring artists, audiences and communities to reach their greatest potential. We produce and present inspiring theatre that reflects the diversity of a modern Britain. We provide the resources, space and support to grow people and ideas, are an ambassador for our city, a flagship for our region and a welcoming home for our communities. Through our work with schools and local communities we engage with thousands of young people, disabled groups and adults, offering opportunities to participate in the arts, whether as the first step into a career, a way to build confidence and meet new people, or as part of a rounded education. During our Year of Exceptional Drama as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 we welcomed a record number of 108,000 audience members at our home in Hull and on tour around the UK. We were thrilled to work with a wide range of internationally renowned artists and companies to stage 13 home-produced plays, including 7 new commissions. We have announced our ambitious equality and diversity plans as part of our commitment to opening up access to all aspects of the theatre. The animation below details how and why we will be ensuring our doors are well and truly flung open to all. It was developed by the theatre’s Inclusion Action Group.
