Writer/performer Toms last show Pedestrian toured extensively last year after wowing critics and audiences alike at Edinburgh 2010 with his outrageous satirical take on modern Britain.



Fresh, frank and compelling, Tom Wainwright's self-penned piece is terrific
Time Out on Pedestrian.


Buttercup is a fat cow from Lancashire. She's lovely. Shes really looking forward to meeting you all. She cant wait to tell you, amongst other things, how she won Masterchef by feeding her stillborn baby to a fish and a potato. And what happened when she was made the star of her own TV show The Only Way is Lancashire.


Since 2006, Tom has been commissioned and produced by Bristol Old Vic, Theatre Royal Bath, Hull Truck Theatre, Paines Plough, North Wall Oxford, and until recently was editor of Bristol and Baths culture mag Venue. He is an alumnus of the 2010 Royal Court Young Writers Programme and Autumn Studio Group and has worked extensively with Exeters own Theatre Alibi.



Having trained in acrobatics before turning to writing and comedy, Tom has developed a highly physical approach to storytelling, marrying his controversial, political material with physical skill. Buttercup tours to Bristol and Pulse festival in Ipswich this summer before touring nationally in the Autumn.



Buttercup continues the theme of borderline offensive satire but for the first time is contained within a deeply sympathetic, very friendly character Buttercup herself.



Tom was born in Devon and has lived all his adult life in Bristol. Buttercup has been developed through Bristol Old Vics Ferment programme.
