Forthright Arts Play: The Gary & Robert Blues

19th November 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


The play focuses on one man isolating himself, as he uses the creation of a new stand-up comedy act to help him reconnect with the world. Throughout the production, he is interrupted by messages left on his answer phone from friends, family and work and a food delivery man . They serve as his slender connection to the real world outside.

This is an experimental piece of ‘theatre’. Originally designed to be played to a live audience in a performance space using surround sound enhanced by visual images on a screen. This was aimed at giving people the shared experience of a theatre performance. It also goes back to the early days of radio, when families would gather around the radio set to listen to a comedy show or a weekly thriller.

However, due to the ongoing COVID restrictions we will have to share the first performances online. It would be great if our audience could gather to listen in household/bubble groups; obviously, following any current COVID guidelines and ensuring that everyone is kept safe. Your feedback about the show will be vital to us so that we can see if our experiment has been successful.

NB the play contains occasional bad language and tackles a difficult subject in an adult and honest way.

Recommended age 16+
