An ëpic tale of violence, greed and chëap søfas.       

10 February 2005, Tottenham. At the stroke of midnight the British public punch, kick, strangle and eventually stab their way to £45 sofas and £35 bed frames at the opening of their favourite Swedish furniture store.

RIOT is a true story set in a lamp-lit flat-pack universe bursting with violence, chaos and more characters than you can throw a meatball at. Hammered together with physical theatre and music, The Wardrobe Ensemble tear up the instructions and disregard the diagrams to construct a comedic tragedy of a thoroughly modern kind.

Marking the 10th Anniversary of Bristol Old Vic’s Made in Bristol programme – on which The Wardrobe Ensemble were formed – this celebratory re-staging is presented exactly as the company made it in 2011.
