Lists for the end of the world

Things I pretend to be interested in

Times my 8 year old self would be proud of me

Places I would hide a body

This is a show composed entirely of crowd-sourced lists, from all kinds of people in all kinds of places – including from you the audience as you queue up to take your seats. In Lists…, the ordinary and the extraordinary, the profound and the ridiculous sit playfully side by side.

Includes: laughs, music, sadtimes, romance, some dancing, a look at the world through other people’s eyes, fish sticks.

As a piece of theatre Lists is beautifully crafted, eloquent, thought-provoking, moving, and very funny. When the work in progress was presented at Live Theatre the audience were held in rapt attention, thoroughly delighted by the juxtaposition of an innovative form and content that spoke succinctly to the reality of their own lives.
