“Inflation should be mandatory viewing for everyone” Audience feedback

Four fools arrive on the high street with a motley collection of blow-up props and an uncooperative bouncy castle. With an initial plan to educate the public on the great British history of castles, they get sidetracked into a fruitless mission to understand the world-wide banking collapse...and how we got into Brexit.



Inflation is a raucous, riotous and bouncy journey through the lunacy of the international financial trading system and BREXIT using slapstick, physical theatre and audience participation. Tangled Feet explore the uncertain ground that our global economical system is standing on, asking the idiotically simple questions we'd all like answers to.

“ In and amongst this mocking, manic, seemingly trivial existence, Inflation managed to isolate moments of reflection...where we would be introduced to the genuine injustice that is caused by a society dominated by its economy. But with the same energy that brought us to this point, we would be swept back into an infantile, inflatable world again. ” - Candid Magazine -
