Combining a Dr Strangelove-inspired performance with a daring forum for public conversation to explore ageing, anxiety, hidden desires and how to look forward when the future is uncertain.

The stage features a round table, doomsday images projected on a screen, echoing the War Room in Stanley Kubrick’s film. In our Situation Room, twelve audience members are invited to become a Council of Elders to discuss the global issues of the day, as the company weave in satirical insights and spirit-lifting humour.

Created in collaboration with Jo Palmer, Claire Nolan, Matt Delbridge, Edythe Woolley, Meghan Hodgson and Alex Legge

Ages 16+

“A messy show, often at its vibrant best when Shaw and Weaver’s relationship is part of the weft and weave.”
