The Soft Subject (A Love Story)

The Soft Subject (A Love Story)

Chris Woodley’s autobiographical solo show The Soft Subject (A Love Story) invites us back into the classroom to learn about love, loss and The Little Mermaid. In this highly-energetic, pop- fuelled, heart-on-the-sleeve account, Woodley playfully explores the peaks and troughs of wanting it all in the modern world. After a critically acclaimed run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival this is the shows London Premier.
