TWS Barker Catastrophe Current Past Register

The Wrestling School is a European theatre company based in London that explores the relationship between language, performer and audience through the work of Howard Barker.

Considered one of the major writers of modern European theatre, Howard Barker's plays fearlessly explore power, sexuality and human behaviour with a poetic and compelling language that is rich in ideas, beauty and dramatic violence. In his Theatre of Catastrophe each performance is a challenge in which actors and audience are inspired to find meaning and resonance from a multiplicity of interpretations.

The award winning Wrestling School has a reputation for outstanding productions of these texts, inspiring enthusiastic audiences with their highly theatrical and imaginative use of language, sound and image. 
                             " the most important buildingless company in Britain "
