Take A Risk Show
The future is uncertain. Does that thrill you or terrify you? Do you seize opportunities, or feel ‘At Risk’?
After her “exponentially funny” shows "Your Days Are Numbered" and the “spectacularly entertaining” "Brainsex", Timandra Harkness has turned to risk. Where will it end? That depends on the audience, the choices you make and the chances you take. In fact, there’s a 1 in 2,985,984 chance you’ll have to do the show yourselves. But that’s basically one in three million, so that’s never going to happen, right?
