Mark Thomas - A Show that Gambles on the Future

Sat 15 Jul 2017

Troublemakers' Festival is delighted to present Mark Thomas with a new work in the making.

Few predicted the events of 2016, and even fewer seem to know where we are going. Mark Thomas sets out to discover what the future has in store for us by collecting and examining his own predictions and those of his audiences before gambling on their outcome.

By making futurologists of us all, he will create a fantastical, hilarious and possibly accurate vision of the world. And maybe even make a few quid on the side.

Mark's extraordinary brand of creative mayhem was one of the original inspirations behind the Troublemakers' Festival, so it is fantastic that he is able to join us for this unique and intimate gig in the heart of the city.
