Does digital technology divide us or bring us closer together?
Does it break friendships or make them?
Can it keep us connected even through times of crisis?

In the time of his greatest need, David has isolated himself, while the rest of Coventry carries on around him. The only way to communicate with him is through the lit up screens that keep us connected to one another. Will that be enough to save him?

Tethered to the Light is a play created and performed by the Belgrade Senior Youth Theatre, which takes the audience through the stages of grief, while examining how technology affects our relationship with ourselves and others.

Performed as part of the All Our Tomorrows festival.

The inmates at a bizarre summer camp are plotting a revolution. Or has it happened? Spending a day watching their schedule of exercise, lessons and meals, a long history of unrest lies hidden, and as the day wears on a violent future looms on the horizon.

Performed as part of the All Our Tomorrows festival.

Clown Funeral present

The Murderer

Tickets: Pay What You Can

I have a murderer in my house. It’s all perfectly fine.

In a world where citizens rehabilitate criminals, the Carer and the Murderer go for coffee and play badminton. *Clown Funeral*’s adaptation of Luke Kennard’s darkly comic poem tells the story of their unusual relationship, questions how easily we can forgive someone and asks to what extent our obsessions can consume us.

Using an electrifying style that blends surreal humour, physical theatre and original music, Clown Funeral vividly bring the bizarre world of the poem to life. With a rolling cast portraying the characters of the Carer, the Murderer and Everyone Else, this unconventional three-hander poses difficult questions about morality, preconceptions and care in a uniquely offbeat voice.
