Mayfest: Deborah Pearson, The Future Show

Wednesday 21 May 2014 to Thursday 22 May 2014, 16:30 to 17:45

You will clap. Even those of you who were a bit bored will clap because it’s a comfortable way to signal an ending.

The Future Show plays with what is expected, what is foreseen and what is ultimately unknowable about the future.

This Sisyphean task of a show tells the story of performer Deborah Pearson’s future, starting from the end of the performance and going until the end of her life.  An existential twist on the autobiographical monologue, the script expires the moment it is spoken, and is rewritten for every performance.

“An act of quiet generosity.”  (***** Andrew Haydon for WhatsOnStage)

“Beautiful and desperately sad.”  (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian)

The Future Show was developed with a grant from Arts Council England, and support from BAC, Amhurst Republic and MAKE in Ireland.
