Good Old Neon is a performance and theatre company founded in 2013 by Nicole Wilson and Alexander Offord. Our work explores the moral, social, and political paradoxes that describe modern life; a theatre of destabilization, of contradictions.
“Good Old Neon produces theatre that reflects the world we live in—shattering, compelling and provocative.” --- Lynn Slotkin
“a young company filled with the ecstatic energy of seaweed in a tsunami…refreshing…brilliant…” --David Bateman
“uncompromisingly strange” – Kelly Bedard
“dynamic, engaging, and extremely multifaceted” – Thomas Volpe
