 WILD ONION

How do we grow together?

Good friends take you as you are, challenge you when you need, and wear onions as moustaches.

 

A new kind of narrative cabaret blending theatre, dance and circus arts, with an eclectic playlist and approximately 100 onions, WILD ONION brings 3 best friends together in this riotous, compassionate hour, finding that in the support of chosen family we’re all able to grow.

 

As Daisy loses sense of herself in hidden family history, we also meet Rach, who’s managing her fear of men by expressing violence towards onions, and Adam, who’s trying to make himself cry (while on a cyr wheel). 

 

WILD ONION is shortlisted for the New Diorama and Underbelly Edinburgh Untapped Award 2022.

 

From makers of ★★★★ show In Addition, described by Mumble as ‘the play Britain needs right now’, WILD ONION is Orange Skies’ return to the touring circuit with a show unlike any other you will have seen before.


We disco. We smash. We love each other very much. Bring your mates, and beware the onion splash zone.

Developed with support from Norwich Theatre. 

Touring across the UK this year.

Reviews

'Highly Recommended Show'

'A brilliantly written and right-rollicking night out. With moments of serious heart-to-heart, bitter recriminations and tender rekindling of friendships. There are tears in the audience at the end. ears of togetherness, of triumph, of release. Yeah, all right, it’s a cliché, but… tears of joy.

'A stand out, fun loving, piece of thought-provoking theatre, with joyful & outlandish onion-based theatrics.'

Audience Reviews

'Truly a show that warms the soul and makes you love your friends more than you do already'

'A joyful show very touching, and skilful!'

It was so beautiful and raw but at the same time extremely joyous!

It was authentic and relatable. I enjoyed the symbolism. The music was great also! 😊
