Old Joe’s Fish ‘n’ Chill

be•wilder theatre company presents: Old Joe's Fish 'n' Chill

It was Old Joe's golden age: in a time when borders did not exist, travellers and regulars would queue up in front of the club for its famous fish and chips and colourful dance-floor. Everyone was a foreigner and everyone felt at home. Until the incident. One year after a terrorist attack, Old Joe’s Fish 'n' Chill looks so decrepit one might assume it’s out of business.

Yet it remains the only place left in the world where people from anywhere can come and go without a visa.

There, a French drag queen, a German-Japanese gangster, a Finnish letter thief, a Czech dictator, a lungless Brazilian, an English terrorist and an invisible drifter meet for the first – and possibly last – time.
