Fri 18 & Sat 19 Mar
Theatre & Performance
Inspired by acclaimed US writer David Foster Wallace’s short story Mister Squishy, Focus Group* is an absurd comedy with a dark heart. We invite you to laugh at the joy, loneliness and surreal nature of contemporary life and consumer culture; all guided ably and professionally by our Focus Group moderator, Terry.
Sit back, eat (individually wrapped, luxury) cake, and see a man gradually relinquish the delusion that he matters in the slightest.
Through TOOT’s distinctive style of interactive-storytelling the company will be asking you to consider; 'is a real connection possible at all?'
.... And then go back to watching kitten videos on Facebook.
