Everything I know about love, I learned from Brief Encounter. Oh, Fred.

But when it comes to matters of the heart, could it be time for us to move on? Isn’t all that just a bit old fashioned now?

A riotous mash-up of cabaret, theatre show and wedding reception, Odd Encounter asks if the whole idea of finding “The One” was always a bit misguided.

There’s blurred lines and mysteriously shaped vegetables.

There’s Princess Leia and a visitation from Nigella Lawson. There’s trains, tunnels and pure filth.

A new show for the age of Harvey Weinstein and #metoo, this unique performance event lifts the lid on love & sex, beginnings & endings, and the passage of time.

Plus you get cake and bubbly.

About Irregular Arts

We create provocative performances, entertaining events and peculiar projects.

We believe in the power of the arts to engage, challenge, delight and change people’s view of the world we live in. Our work is about creating opportunities to make this happen.

We like working with popular stories or ideas and familiar characters, turning these into something a bit more unexpected and strange, but still entertaining.

We work on the streets, in community centres, online and on screen, in theatres and arts centres, at festivals and in public spaces, connecting the arts with people.

Alphabetti Theatre

Alphabetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard in 2012. We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
