The Future is Mental

Are you happy now? Near-future stories drawing on Black Mirror, Margaret Atwood and the black comedy of Killing Eve. Focused on the stories of women, the plays feature all-seeing smart speakers, curing depression in unusual ways, a new way to choose a decent politician and how to look good in the afterlife. Decluttering, one of the pieces within the show, started life as a short story and was the runner-up in the Crime Writers’ Association Margery Allingham Prize 2019.

Press & Reviews

Praise for Previous Work
FringeGuru*****"Sometimes startling, sometimes thought-provoking but always enjoyable, Work Makes You Free is an unexpected highlight of the VAULT this year."
RemoteGoat*****"The Vaults Theatre may have the high wire act of this year’s festival but it’s at Network Theatre that you’ll see four great actors go live without a net in this excellent play."
