‘Waiting for Godot for the post-truth age’ (The Herald), People Show’s 130th show The Last Straw challenges audiences to consider the dystopian absurdity of modern communication.
Confined in an unidentified liminal space, a man and a woman are trying to pin down some facts. Hurried along by relentless content, stricken by disasters and facing problems varying vastly in scale, how do we know where to focus? How do we know what’s true anymore? With the facts literally shredded on the floor, we observe these people as they navigate love and loss as it intersects with the complexities of today’s world.
Darkly comic, visually stunning and with breath-taking sound, this two-hander from People Show, was devised in just three weeks and previewed at Ovalhouse, London in February 2017. Since then it has been performed at Brighton Festival, Camden People’s Theatre and Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Summerhall).
