Oh my! This show! It'll leave you raw. It's hilarious and heartbreaking and gross and shocking. It's an interactive, gritty, Glaswegian horror about the reality of heroin addiction. Don't expect the movie- it's much more hard core. The vaults are an amazing venue for this...More

Went to see Teddy. Great venue with wonderful atmosphere - the rumble of trains from above adds to the feeling of being in the underworld. Show was great and suited the venue perfectly
