Confetti & Chaos

This mad, interactive show is the worst wedding reception you’ll ever go to… and everyone is invited!

A 5-star comedy with fun and mayhem bursting from the seams of a wedding dress, this completely immersive and original comedy pulls out all the stops – including quick-fire character changes and quick-fire laughs.

When the mother of the bride throws a surprise wedding reception, you can perhaps expect an elaborate party. But there are also uninvited guests, misbehaving family, and secrets spilling from the closet.

Crammed with comedy and chaos, this original, confetti-filled show features four performers playing nine characters in a whirlwind of laughter, love and tears. There’s even a 3-course meal, and maybe even some dancing!

‘Pumped to bursting with energy, filled with hilarity and a riot of epic proportions, it is impossible not to fall madly in love with this immersive event’ *****BroadwayWorld, Edinburgh Fringe

From arrival through to seating, eating and dancing, Confetti & Chaos is a classic take on an English wedding reception gone wildly wrong. It is a totally immersive and highly improvised comedy dining show written and produced by Interactive Theatre International, the people behind the global smash hit, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience. Debuting in 2015, it has since appeared at Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe, and on tour in Australia, the UK, Ireland and Singapore.
