This Is Not A Drill takes us on a darkly funny and highly theatrical journey across Outer and Inner Space, cyber landscapes and the kitchen floor. The international ensemble of actors brings vividly to life the struggle to think about what’s ahead when social conditioning has us checking our phones in the face of crisis.
This February, discover the latest emerging talent from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama over an eleven day run at the Tristan Bates Theatre in the heart of Covent Garden.
Graduating actors from the BA (Hons) Acting Collaborative and Devised Theatre course have worked alongside BA (Hons) Theatre Practice students and industry professionals to create a dynamic piece of new, original new work.
In this premier performance run, This Is Not A Drill explores themes of the future, the rise of the digital age, climate change, space travel and galactic possibilities. Combining bold, innovative use of video, light and sound, a playful and physical approach to performance with rigorous contemporary questioning, the show pushes the boundaries for new work by young theatre makers.
Professional support includes direction by Jemima James (Assistant Director on Complicite’s The Encounter) and set and costume design by Harry Whitham (Hookup by Outbox at Hackney Showroom).
