Soho Theatre in association with Shared Experience presents


By Emily Woof Tue 7 – Sat 25 May 60 minutes
A scurrilous and intimate journey into love, identity and the animal in all of us…

A woman’s brain-scientist husband falls ill just as he is due to give the keynote lecture at a Swiss conference. She reluctantly agrees to give the lecture on his behalf. But when she arrives in Switzerland, her life starts to unravel.

A comic, philosophical adventure asks what is the self, what is thinking, what is the body? And in a godless universe, how do we connect with this thing called the soul? 

Emily Woof’s landmark solo shows Sex III and Revolver won back to back Edinburgh Fringe Firsts and were performed at Royal Court Theatre over twenty years ago.

Now she is back with an intimate epic, a surreal and hilarious shaggy-dog story, about philosophy and neuroscience, dance and animals, love and the soul, which asks the question: how should we really live in body and mind?

Loved the show? Wanna see more?

"Blizzard, for me, is what theatre does best. It is strange and free but within the confines of a brilliantly designed story world"

"Woof is a masterly storyteller whose character is charming to watch as she navigates unfamiliar situations"
The Stage
"Wacky, witty and heart-warming, Blizzard is a wonderfully bizarre hour-long foray into how we understand the world"
