Cleary Mallard George Prior /The Warriors/
Adad an alien planet found at the bottom of a wormhole, is in turmoil. and what's that? A meteor is crashing towards the planet. After a life-changing, time-travelling, mind-awakening encounter with a mysterious entity known only as, The Gork. The two Adadian leaders join forces but will their combined armies be enough to protect their sacred planet Adad from extinction? Only the Gork knows…
The Warriors are time-travelling comrades exploring the universe with The Gork. Fusing experimental poetry with immersive theatre, The Warriors use technology, crowd control and Dadaism to embark upon inter-dimensional quests.

They have also stormed the walls of Kingston’s International Youth Arts Festival, The Worthing Theatre Trail, Verbs and Spices at Peckham Springs, and countless Brighton cabarets, events and open mics.
