"Think before you go. It’s called forward planning"

Homespun philosopher and toilet-attendant Ted creates his own world of law and order within the murky walls of a subterranean public convenience away from the corrupt world outside. With the help of his devoted disciple Rob, Ted sets out on his mission to bring justice to the world. When a clown and an evangelical preacher wander into Ted’s domain they are forced to confront the ultimate consequences of their actions.

Centred around the themes of religion and justice, W.C. is a piece of theatre of great relevance today, as conflicts flare in the modern world, in the quest for territorial and religious supremacy, but above all about man’s desire to control others.

"Well paced, with a nice hint of black absurdism, undoubtedly great fun."
