neat11 show plays at New York's Public Theater

Friday 27th January 2012

Co-produced by Nottingham Playhouse

Gob Squad’s Kitchen (You’ve never had it so good) co-produced by Nottingham Playhouse, is currently enjoying a run at the Public Theater in New York, following sell out performances at the Nottingham European Arts and Theatre Festival 2011 (neat11)

(You’ve never had it so good)

Devised and performed by Nottingham based Gob Squad, the show reconstructs Andy Warhol films in the quest to illuminate the past for a new generation, reflecting on the nature of authenticity, the here and now, and the hidden depths beneath the shiny surfaces of modern life.

Rave Reviews

Performing to sell out crowds in Nottingham, the show is receiving rave reviews in New York:

“An absolute gem of a show.”
– Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

“Witty and constantly entertaining — a wonderful integration of film and theater.”
– Elizabeth Vincentelli, New York Post


Nottingham Playhouse led on neat11, a new festival for Nottingham. The festival saw venues across Nottingham collaborate and celebrate the very best European theatre, dance, music, performance, film and visual art for adults and children. Giles Croft, Artistic Director of Nottingham Playhouse and neat11 commented:

“We are delighted that Gob Squad, a company that was formed in Nottingham and continues to do much work here, is enjoying success at the Public Theater in New York. The Public Theater shares many of the same ambitions as us and so it is fitting that Gob Squad have gone on to perform their neat11 show there. We hope they will return for neat14.”

“In the meantime we delighted to welcome back another neat11 success, Court in the Act! which opens on Wednesday. Court in the Act! is a narrative improvised show where the audience create a unique and completely mad court case and decides the defendant’s fate.”
