The skies are strangely orange. Things aren’t going as well as we thought. The rent’s gone up. Money is tight. It’s a bit too warm for the time of year. You can’t breathe this dirty air. You’re not sure who you can trust any more. What is that man doing over there? What did she just say on the news about missiles? It just feels like the end of the world is coming…

Drink anyone?

It’s time for an adventure. For a party. For an epic night out.

It’s time for us to teach you everything you need to get by when the end comes. And for us to celebrate everything that’s made life worth living.

Nigel Barrett & Louise Mari of pioneering cult performance collective shunt, bring you their genre defying Party Skills for the End of the World, reimagined specifically for Shoreditch Town Hall. Perfect for people who don’t really like theatre and an unusual theatrical experience for those who do, get ready for one wild and weird night.

Strictly for ages 18+

Commissioned and produced with Manchester International Festival

"Pretty impressive in terms of scale, ambition and imagination. This is immersive theatre that delights and disturbs in equal measure"

"This is riveting political theatre"

"The play, if that is what it was…felt like a shout of happiness and a scream of despair."
