Lists for the end of the world


Lists… is a show composed entirely of lists, sourced from all kinds of people in all kinds of places.

Songs I’ve kissed people to

Things I pretend to be interested in

Times my 8 year old self would be proud of me

Places I would hide a body

It offers audiences a sideways perspective on how we choose to live and what’s important; a show in which the ordinary and the extraordinary, the profound and the ridiculous sit playfully side by side.

This show is a mashup of humour and empathy, underscored by an eclectic soundtrack, driven by that need we have to make sense of our lives. Lists... is a joyful and touching view of the world through other people’s eyes - it’s a space for reflection without being earnest, a chance to feel connected without ever having to leave the safety of your seat.

Lists... was developed through residencies at Dartington, Live & ARC, with work-in-development sharings at Live, ARC & Shoreditch Town Hall. 2017 dates coming soon...



DEVELOPED BY Dan Barnard, Chris Bone, Rachel Briscoe, Rachel Donovan, Clare Dunn, Shireen Mula, Joe Radcliffe, Ed Richards, Emma Stirling & Delme Thomas | 2016 SHOWS PERFORMED BY Rachel Donovan, Clare Dunn, Shireen Mula & Delme Thomas | DIRECTED BY Dan Barnard & Rachel Briscoe.

Lists... was awarded the Live Lab Empty Space Bursary in 2016, and co-commissioned by ARC Stockton. It was also supported by Dartington and Shoreditch Town Hall. 



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.
