Best in the World - Customs House, South Shields
Best in the World

A  heart-warming, hilarious and occasionally heroic theatre show. It is set in a world that can transport us from the ordinary to the extraordinary. A world where we can all be champions. A world where every one of us is just one perfect throw from greatness.

That world is darts.

Performer, Alex Elliott, takes audiences on a journey to discover what it really means to be best in the world. Through the power of live darts, motivational bananas and true stories of world champions, Best in the World creates a joyful, welcoming and uplifting space that celebrates all of our gold medal moments.

Best in the World has toured to theatres, festivals, and community venues across the UK. To date, it has never been performed in South Tyneside, despite having been inspired and informed by the darts players of The Steamboat Pub. Unfolding Theatre is excited about the possibility the commission brings to redevelop and perform the show in the place it began life.
Reviews of Best in the World

There can only be one word for it: MAGIC THEATRE. -                        
Best Emerging Company Finalist- Total Theatre Awards

"A hugely compelling piece of theatre, moving, funny, wise and warm" Audience member

"I took two friends who are non-theatergoers. Theyre now talking about making theatre night a regular thing. The ultimate feedback!?"

Unfolding Theatre makes big-hearted theatre that delights in bringing people together. Described by the Guardian as thrillingly talented people, their award-winning productions have attracted acclaim regionally and nationally. The company tours to diverse audiences and settings: theatres, community centres, schools and outdoor spaces.
