Wild Surmise was formed in the spring of 2017 after Duncan Turner's one-act comedy, So Bad, was workshopped at Didcot Cornerstone arts centre by six actors and a director. 


Extracts from So Bad have been performed by Wild Surmise at scratch nights at Didcot Cornerstone (September 2017) and the Old Fire Station arts centre in Oxford (March 2018). Another extract has been performed by a different cast at Page to Stage at the Horse and Stables in Lambeth. The play has also been workshopped by the Monday Club at Chelsea Theatre. 


So Bad will be presented at Bread and Roses Theatre on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 October as part of the Clapham Fringe. After this, our main objective is to produce So Bad in a double-bill with a second original comedy, Autumn Leaves, at an Oxfordshire venue or a London fringe theatre.


But we hope to move on from achieving this ambition to touring our work. We won't rest till Wild Surmise is an established company.

Then felt I like some watcher of the skies 

When a new planet swims into his ken; 

Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes 

He star'd at the Pacific—and all his men 

Look'd at each other with a wild surmise— 

Silent, upon a peak in Darien
