The Welcome Revolution (Feat. Theatre)

By | Published on Sunday 19 August 2018

Welcoming is a dying art. This is what Lara noticed when she reopened her granddad’s cafe, only to find that society has grown weary of strangers, and that those who need sympathy the most just aren’t getting it. Hence ‘The Welcome Revolution’, an interactive one-woman performance promoting trust, kindness, and tea. As Lara, Stella Von Kuskell is an incredibly skilled storyteller and has a gift for making every single audience member feel included, without the stress that an audience-participation-heavy show can sometimes cause. Lara recounts the heart-warming tale that connects her to her grandfather, and includes the audience in a way that is fun and laid-back, encouraging participants to get to know each other in a friendly environment.

Zoo Southside, until 27 Aug.
