The Spread Eagle Pub Theatre, Croydon

Saturday, 28 Mar

£8.00 - £30.00

A social experiment? A support group for people looking to find their own comedy? 12-step meeting? Literal mind-reading show? A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? A prayer group? A waste of everyone's time and money? Those who wish to participate are free to do so, as are those who prefer to sit back, relax and watch the spectacle unfold.

'Blew me away. An absolute masterclass in comedy performance' The Scotsman

'100% gag-free. Clever without being a smartarse. About as much fun as you can have without taking your kit off' The Mirror

The Spread Eagle Pub Theatre

Katharine Street



Trevor Lock first went on the telly with Lee and Herring and on tour with Stewart Lee.  He starred in all three series of Channel 4’s British Comedy Award winning, BAFTA nominated Star Stories, wrote two plays for Radio 4 and once addressed the Oxford Union on the meaning of life.  True stories, one-liners, flights of fancy and plausible theories, all went into his stream of consciousness freestyle stand up.  The Scotsman once described him as ‘Funny, moving and clever.’  TimeOut, simply as ‘hilarious’ and culture website Spoonfed thought he could ‘probably win an award for the most laughs in a minute.’  The Sunday Times wrote of the‘superbly comic writing’ of his plays on the Edinburgh Fringe. Then along came Trevor Lock’s Community Circle.  


The Spread Eagle Pub Theatre does not have wheelchair access – apologies for this.

Latecomers are welcome (but expect some banter!). Doors open approx. 15 minutes before the show starts.
