After his 2018 Fringe debut, Worm's Lament (The Guardian's Top Shows of the Edinburgh Fringe), Rob Oldham is back.

Worm's Resolve explores being right, being wrong and getting angry.

Newspaper fonts, bows and arrows and nose piercings will also be discussed. Answers will be sought, jokes will be told and an impending sense of doom will be momentarily lifted!

As seen on BBC Three and BBC One, as heard on BBC Radio 4.

'It's full of finely wrought observation' (The Upcpoming) ****

'I was expecting a lot from Rob Oldham. He did not disappoint' (One4Review) ****

Directed by Liam Williams.
