Description

Unicorns, have you noticed they’re everywhere right now? As is the far right. This hilarious, rollicking, razor-sharp show asks what the simultaneous rise of these phenomenons tells us. Hunting the omnipresent one-horned icon across civilisations to explore how ideologies spread and our imaginations become capitalised, Nick Field envisions a dystopian Unicorn Fascist State Britain. When the unicorns take control, there’s only one thing to do – throw a party. That’s an order! Unicorn Party is a riff of satirical comedy, power ballads, myth-making, and copious glitter, to take a sneaky gawp at what happens when escapism becomes inescapable.

Broadway World (3/5 stars) 4 days ago

Unicorns are everywhere right now: gift cards, hair tutorials, sugary drinks and glittery baked goods. Unicorn Party examines the unicorn phenomenon, its history and its potentially sinister future.

Exeunt 10 days ago

In a dark room in the capital city of a country which already claims the unicorn as its national animal, a swastika formed from rearing, horned horse-heads flickers ominously on a projector screen. Part dystopian satire, part self-disclosing performance lecture, Unicorn Party is an unapologetically raw solo piece from multidisciplinary...
