Important information:

This show contains strong language, haze and flashing lights.

Soggy bottom and submerging artist Chris White presents a sloshy spoken-word show about falling. Whether that's in and out of love, or in & out of the sea. A show about blood & water & the fact that one’s thicker than the other. Expect fish-puns, wet runs and dry heaves as we dive into the queer experience, armed only with a cheap bottle of wine and an extended metaphor.

Moist, Moist, Moist is part poetry, part stand-up, part gig. Featuring live music from Hal Kelly.

"Bizzare and hilarious" (

Chris White is a poet, performer, multiple slam winner and former 'Bard of Exeter.' He’s taken his work to theatres, festivals & spoken-word nights across the UK from Tongue Fu to Latitude. In his silly, surreal way he often talks about queerness, identity & ducks.

Hal Kelly is a musician, artist and theatre-maker who creates experimental electronic music and soundscapes. He's released two albums; Ears Eaten and Like a Liquid.

Recipient of the 2021 National Partnership Award with Theatre Royal Plymouth, supported by the John Ellerman Foundation
