More information about Barbed Wire Tongue tickets

Lenny Bruce was an American comedian, social critic, and satirist. Renowned for his open, free-style, critical form of comedy, he integrated satire, politics, religion and sex into his material. He paved the way for future outspoken counterculture-era comedians. In 'Barbed Wire Tongue' from acclaimed writer/director Thom McKeown, Bruce is played by accomplished actor Henry Campbell, re-creating this incendiary stand-up pioneer's style looking at current affairs in the present day.
'Sublime, encapsulating so many facets of contemporary existence. I was laughing, crying, moved, jaw-dropped in amazement and completely immersed.'
'Great acting and brilliant writing - a potent mix'
