What's on/Brighton Fringe 2022/Qrumpet

You’ve heard of

quantum tunneling,


The theory that if you continuously

 throw a crumpet

at a wall

it’ll eventually

go through?


We are a machine. We will stop at nothing

 until that one crumpet, the chosen one, the Quantum Qrumpet, makes it to the other side.


From ANTS Theatre's pursuit of pointed

 pointlessness comes our funny-yet-poignant piece based on repetition, clown and hope.


On your marks. Get set. Throw.


‘how is this show so funny?’

Dr. Lynne Kendrick (for Qrumpet)


'I really wanted to be hit with a tasty pastry!' 

Audience Member (for Qrumpet)


'Felt like lockdown when everyone was trying to make the perfect banana bread as a cover up for how shit life actually was.. banal, monotonous and absolutely hilarious' 

Audience Member (for Qrumpet)


'The most original piece of theatre you'll experience in 2021, locked-down or not... Almost like a wholesome version of Black Mirror.'
