STAND-UP PHILOSOPHY: ‘PLAY’
Philosophy is a very serious business. So is Comedy. Or are they? Aren’t they just ways for grown-ups to play? On 3rd March we’ll be finding out!
What does it mean to play? Why is it important for children? Do we really give it up when we “mature” or just find more subtle games to play? And why, when players play, must haters hate?
Answering these questions and more will be:
Top Stand-up ANDY WHITE!
Comedian SIÂN DOCKSEY!
Philosopher Dr MICHELA BARISELLI!
Comic/philosopher POPPY COLLIER!
And a proper bit from host CHARLIE DUNCAN SAFFREY!
Come along if you’re curious!
