JERICHO is about professional wrestling.

There’s a good reason, trust us.

This is a show about the world we live in, and have always lived in, and always will live in. It's about bad things happening that a lot of people think are good things (and vice versa). It's also about journalism and treating entertainment like it’s politics (and vice versa).


★★★★ Gripping, entertaining and mind-expanding – The Scotsman

★★★★ Irony tempered by sincerity - or vice versa – The Stage

Marks MALAPROP out as a company of real ambition. – Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor

★★★★ An energetic and colourful piece – A Younger Theatre

★★★★ Absorbing, funny, and intellectual – Fest

★★★★ Highly relevant and exceedingly thought-provoking – Broadway World

★★★★ JERICHO has a remarkably true understanding of itself; even when its subject is confusion, it never seems confused. – Irish Times
