Patience With Our Souls

| Friday 3rd June | 7.30pm | Pay What You Think Is A Reasonable Amount To Pay For What You SAW (PWYTIARATPFWYS) |

Patience With Our Souls is a new show written and performed by Barnaby J Thompson, produced by Comedian in Residence Sean Morley.

Thompson expounds on the passages of some of the greatest writers of all time in an attempt to investigate whether such monumental literary works are better experienced performed or in private. A show that explores the natural humiliations encountered when we try to be conclusive regarding the outpourings of epochal artists.

For this new show produced for Bank Street Arts Thompson will be taking on the greatest writers of the modern age and the nature of classical performance. Probably.

About the Artist

Barnaby J Thompson is a prolific and enigmatic shaman-like figure whose works include Glue Reviews, The Tibetan Book of the Dead: the Musical, Phil Marketing’s Big Society, Bubba Flumpet Hand Puppets, Stipe Day & Dance Troupe, Birthday Bread Man, and more.

The following are all genuine user reviews written about some of Barnaby’s previous productions at The Edinburgh Fringe:
“I’ll be perfectly honest: as a reviewer I’m stumped. I just don’t know what to make of this show. I don’t know what happened. I don’t know how to feel. I don’t know how to react.”
“I wanted to run away and not have to think about death: his, mine or anyone else’s”
“In other words, I’m not sure I enjoyed it at the time but it left me with a profound impression and kept me thinking for a long while afterwards.”
“It seems like a strange comparison, bear with me, but when i visited Auschwitz there is no way I would say I “enjoyed” it. That would be the most terrible insult. I felt something. And there is no doubt this performance will make you feel.”
“His hopeless smile and red sweaty face will haunt me for a long time.”
