Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore, 2017

A Unicorn production

It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.

  • Written by Gary Owen
  • Directed by Tim Crouch

★★★★ 'A delicious piece of clowning theatre' The Guardian
★★★★ 'Smart, surreal and delightfully sensual comedy' Time Out
★★★★ 'A colourful, gleeful show' The Stage

Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore are at the seaside. “They have a towel, an inflatable ball, a picnic and three contrasting temperaments” (Time Out) in this “stupidly lovely show… that offers a child’s eye view of the world and all its mysteries” (The Guardian). 

Revelling in delightful innocence and glorious stupidity, Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore is a surprising and surreal encounter with three people who have a lot to say but only three words with which to say it.

Tour dates:
The Ark, Dublin 12 - 26 Apr 2017
Brighton Festival 8 - 9 May 2017

WHAT AUDIENCES THINK ABOUT THE SHOW:


FROM THE DIRECTOR
Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore is about trying to come to grips with the complexities of the world and having very few words with which to do it. That’s a pretty clear state for a 3 or 4 year-old or even someone my age really [...] It is a joyous play, a play in the true spirit of the word ‘play’ - it’s not a piece of literature but a piece of live theatre and with that kind of clowning you always play off the audience. They affect, infect and influence what you do, and you have that same effect on them. Above all else, this is a really funny play, unlike any other play I know.”


'A TRIUMPH OF WIT WITH BOMBASTIC PHYSICAL COMEDY'

★★★★ Culture Whisper

'ADULTS AND CHILDREN ALIKE WERE LAUGHING RESOUNDINGLY FOR THE FULL FIFTY MINUTES...A TREAT AT THE UNICORN FOR ALL AGES'

★★★★ Theatre Bubble

'THE UNICORN THEATRE HAS CREATED A SUPERGROUP BY COMBINING THE TWIN FORCES OF GARY OWEN (WRITER) AND TIM CROUCH (DIRECTOR) FOR A COLOURFUL, GLEEFUL SHOW.'

 ★★★★ The Stage

'RIDICULOUS, CHEEKY AND DELIGHTFUL'

Exeunt

'THIS TOUCHING AND RATHER MARVELLOUS SEASIDE CAPER'

Curious Mum 

'JH&O definitely didn’t disappoint: it captured the basic pleasures and frustrations in kids’ (and parents’) worlds very elegantly'
