Action Hero: Hoke’s Bluff in UK tour

Contemporary theatre inspired by American teen sports movies.

Hoke's Bluff

The tour of Hoke’s Bluff runs Wednesday 8th October – Wednesday 10th December with London dates of Tuesday 18th November – Saturday 29th November.

Award-winning performance company Action Hero’s Hoke’s Bluff, critically acclaimed from a run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2013 as part of the British Council showcase, now goes on tour.

Hoke’s Bluff navigates the curious territory in which our emotional responses to American dreams outweigh our rational understanding of what America (and the Western world) really stands for. By attempting a heartfelt and sincere rendition of schmaltzy, hackneyed sports movies it gently reveals both the ambient violence and the genuine beauty that hide within
these seemingly innocuous cornball stories.

Hoke’s Bluff meets its audience on the bleachers and tells them an underdog story that’s been told a million times before. It reworks the hackneyed formulas of high school storylines and the cheap sentimentality of inspiring locker room speeches to find out what it means to be a winner (on the inside).
