Everyone loves a good sledging. Critic Kenneth Tynan once said of an actor that ‘it would be easier to strike sparks off a rubber dinghy than Sir Ralph.’ Film critic Roger Ebert’s scathing reviews are so beloved that his most popular have been collected into a series of books: I Hated, Hated, Hated, HATED This Movie; Your Movie Sucks; and A Horrible Experience of Unendurable Length.

The first rule of making art is don’t respond to your critics. But in Wild Bore three masters of smart, spiky, political comedy delve into the torrent of critical fury that has been aimed at baffling, misunderstood and downright awful works of art (including their own). They are superstars in their own right, but Zoe Coombs Marr (winner of the Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for Trigger Warning), Ursula Martinez (UK) and Adrienne Truscott (US) now team up for the first time to prove they too are not afraid to talk out of their arses.
