Bikeshed Theatre

The award-winning cult hit of the Edinburgh Fringe is bouncing back.

It’s1989. Manchester. A frenzy of drugs, beats and bucket hats. Illegal raves. Acid parties. Just jumping up and down in a field and throwing two fingers to Thatcher… Remember it?

Because we don’t. We weren’t even born. But Ian was. And Ian does remember. We’ve got f*ck all now (Ian tells us). So, we’re going back to 1989. We’re gonna neck a brown biscuit. We’re gonna get off our peanuts. We’re gonna bounce around like idiots. And Ian’s going to show us how. We’re mad fer it. And you will be too. Let’s party.

Using anecdotes from their 46 year old friend Ian about the glory days, IBWMB naively and hysterically attempt to recreate the party: a messy, multimedia mish-mash of clowning, dance routines and lip-syncing. Scored by Ian’s favourite tracks from the era.

In Bed With My Brother are an award winning theatre company formed (and based) right here in Exeter. They were The Bike Shed Theatre’s Graduate Company 2015/16 and are looking forward to returning to Edinburgh where We Are Ian enjoyed huge success last year.


This event takes place at The Boat Shed on Exeter’s quay
