WHERE DO WE GO NEXT?

BUNKER TAKEOVER WEEK 8

curated by Caitriona Shoobridge

In the light of the GE2019 result we are staring starkly into the face of five more years of austerity, which will marginalize and threaten the most vulnerable in our communities – theatre must fight back. It must be political in its ideas and it must work tirelessly to elevate the voices that are being turned down, switched off and ignored. - Caitriona Shoobridge


WHERE DO WE GO NEXT? is a film project featuring six new short plays from underrepresented writers interrogating the importance of diverse, political theatre in an increasingly hostile environment.

In the wake of theatre closures and government advice these films will be made available online for one week only - the final week of the Takeover Season 24th-29th March and the final week of the Bunker Theatre's programme. 

Curated by director Caitriona Shoobridge (Ivan and the Dogs, Killymuck) these films ask; who is responsible for creating theatre spaces that reflect the society they serve?
HANGMAN by
Abraham Adeyemi
An exploration of coping with the pressure of existing as a working class human,
and the subsequent response to their truth (or, existence).

FUCKED
by Adam Hughes
A working-class writer is programmed at a prestigious theatre. But as the piece develops, PR campaigns are launched and other creatives join the conversation, the writer, their play, its message is lost in a world of ignorant stereotypes.

KEYS by
Matilda Ibini
KEYS is about learning to understand the power within and remembering the keys we already possess.

SAME AGAIN by
Charley Miles
SAME AGAIN is about rural isolation and commodification. An angry but hopeful play about an attempt to regain the heart of a community, and how it was stolen away in the first place.

“MAY I, SPEAK-ER?”
by Nessah Muthy
A wonderful opportunity.
A chance to make real change.
But Mr Speaker has got X muddled. And it's awkward. For X. Not Mr Speaker, despite what he insists.

THE FEEVS by
Kat Woods 
THE FEEVS is an exploration of poverty and the arts and who gives the benefits class a platform.
