Performance Collective Stranraer Present Unsupervised Adulting Performance Collective Stranraer Present Unsupervised Adulting

BRIGEND THEATRE, Dumfries, DG2 7AE - Thu 27th October 2022
Millenium Centre, Stranraer - Sat 29th October 2022

A ferocious physical theatre comedy about a dreary working week. This athletic production, performed by West of Scotland's finest young talents is an hour's jaunt navigating adult responsibility, whilst holding on to childlike play.
Set in a standard temp office - where no one knows exactly what all this paperwork is for - two long-suffering employees and their less-than-capable team leader continue the daily trudge until the new start walks in, determined to shake up the system.
The production is non-verbal - all storytelling is delivered through movement. As such, the production is suitable for d/Deaf audience members.
