TIME is the story of a middle-aged female cliché, who uses her post-menopausal superpower to visit her successful friends from her past and reinvent her life.
Written, performed and directed by Gaynor O’Flynn, whose work has featured on BBC, C4, and Canal+, and whose music has featured in films including Argo, Oscar Best Picture 2013 TIME has an award-winning team who also work for the National Theatre, Barbican and Sadlers Wells…
The show uses innovative immersive and virtual production techniques, featuring giant virtual characters, who join Gaynor to play the roles of her bigger, better, brighter friends.
The audience is invited to chant “TIME” via the TIME app. The audience’s chants form a digital choir at the end of the play and create an online digital artwork, as we all call for a “Fairer, Feminist Future”…
