Bon Ami

Presented by All in Theatre

Following on from their critically acclaimed shows CIVILISED and LOVE SICK (Best Comedy Award Brighton Fringe, “Top Ten Comedy Acts to Watch” The Guardian), All in are back with
their new show, BON AMI. Developed in association with Battersea Arts Centre and The Unicorn Theatre.

BON AMI is a comedy two hander starring Tatiana Collet Apraxine and Amalia Vitale. Ami is normal, Ami has a job, Ami has family and friends, a gym membership and decent broadband. Ami shouldn’t feel desperately alone...but she does.
If only there was an aquatic adventure, a malevolent wizard or a an overly self aware giant monster to distract her. Oh wait...

BON AMI is a sharp, artistic parody about loneliness, the importance of friendship and why you shouldn't drink from a coffee machine!
"Funniest hour I've enjoyed in this month-long Fringe" - Fringeguru ****

praise for previous work
"an irreverent, absurd and truly anarchic hour of silliness. As they explore themes such as the history of art, war, money and health." The Argus
-Best Comedy Award Brighton Fringe
-Top Ten Comedy acts to watch - The Guardian
-“Startlingly clever and profoundly idiotic. All in manage to comment on the mysteries of life and make your internal organs go weak with laughter. Many young companies try to do this, very few succeed” Tim Crouch
-“Utterly brilliant comic minds.” View From The Gods
-“Funniest and most creative material you’ll see at the Fringe.” Fringe Review – OUTSTANDING SHOW
