Red front door. Gold number 1. Tiny peephole. Take a look around.

GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN want to open up and let you in. Right in. So you can really get a feeling for what it’s like on the inside. This is an ‘evening with’ – conversation, songs, shit like that. Someone’s left a passive aggressive note on the kitchen table; it’s about entitlement, property and privacy.
Welcome to the show home, everyone.

Number 1, The Plaza is a souvenir album from a joyride through extravaganza, cabaret, reality, live art, theatre and filth.

"Number 1, The Plaza...strips away all the illusions of theatre with a vengeful fury. Then it wipes the audience's face in it." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
