The Way You Tell Them
Rachel Mars/Basement, Brighton/CPT, London
The Way you Tell Them has a further three dates 19th, 21st & 23rd in the Anatomy Lecture Theatre, please see HERE
Rachel Mars has always relied on humour. But what would happen if she couldn’t fall back on laughter? Turning the spotlight on the inner workings of comedy, The Way You Tell Them interrogates the desire and – sometimes uncontrollable – compulsion to be funny. Using real-life material, classic oral sex jokes and a wolf suit she weaves a thoughtful and unsettling story that questions how we use and abuse humour.
The Way You Tell Them will also be performed in the Anatomy Lecture Theatre between the 19th and 23rd as part of an extended run! See Summerhall’s website for details.

"A talky, dancey, jokey piece that’s hilarious and uncomfortable in turns"
"Rachel Mars is Electrifying"
"Clever, funny and endearingly informal "
