Ahir Shah: Control

In an age of global socio-political turmoil, Shah presents a show about freedom, fascism, history, hope, resistance and milk.

Ahir's last show enjoyed packed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Soho Theatre, and a national tour. In it, he theorised that we were being tugged in contradictory directions by a potential brighter future and resurgent worst of the past. He's currently trying to work out how to build that future in a time when the past appears to be winning. He's got loads of jokes about it.

WHY? 'Excellent' ★★★★ Guardian

Here's a recipe inspired by Tove Jansson's original story! 'Moominmamma worked all afternoon. A little before dark she had the food cooked for Christmas, and served in small bowls around the fir tree. There was juice and yoghurt and blueberry pie and eggnog and other things the Moomin family liked' Tove Jansson - The Fir Tree
