Scottee encounters past flames, ex-friends and people who no longer like him in attempt to find out where he went wrong.

Scottee wants to find out what people really think of him. Why did he pretend to have AIDS, what prompted him to steal money from his Nan, why did tell everyone his friend committed suicide when she hadn’t and what caused all this behavior in the first place?

Performed in a photo booth you are exposed to four snap shots of his troublesome teens. This show will give you reasons not to like him – it is Scottee at his very worst.

Scottee won Time Out Performer of the Year in 2010 and is currently an associate artist at Roundhouse and Duckie. He is a regular contributor on Radio 4’s Loose Ends, the creator of the ‘beauty pageant for fat people’ Hamburger Queen and presenter of iTunes Top 10 podcast After The Tone. The Worst of Scottee is his debut solo tour.

Directed by Chris Goode, Chris is ‘a theatre-maker who’s up there with the very best’ (The Guardian). His work has included two Fringe First award-winning shows and has been described as ‘A cool, sobering and quietly passionate reality check’ (The Scotsman).

“A progressive sensibility and tits-n-teeth showmanship… it’s as if he’s gone off the end of the pier, dredged the waters and returned bearing slime with a glint in his eye. He puts on one hell of a show” Time Out

“[Scottee] proves that experimental theatre can be witty and accessible, frightening and wondrous in equal measure” – WhatsOnStage ****
