Good Old Neon creates theatre from an experimental, ensemble-driven process. We aim to produce theatre that invokes shock, laughter, inquisition and visceral responses from within our audiences. The form our work takes emerges from a sense of play: traditional narrative structures, contemporary themes and ideas encapsulating the worldly, the absurd and the deeply personal are reassembled and presented as novel, entertaining and vividly challenging theatrical experiences.
“Good Old Neon produces theatre that reflects the world we live in—shattering, compelling and provocative.” --- Lynn Slotkin
“a young company filled with the ecstatic energy of seaweed in a tsunami…refreshing…brilliant…” --David Bateman
“uncompromisingly strange” – Kelly Bedard
“dynamic, engaging, and extremely multifaceted” – Thomas Volpe
