There’s a shadow coming from across the seas and it is imposing terror and fear. The vultures are circling overhead, the wolves are snaring and howling, and the question that must be asked is… how can we weather this storm?
The global economy is in a hideous mess; with the recent crash came the powerful outbound tides that, along with taking the life of the seas, have also taken away the hope of our people. The pockets have become redundant whilst the products abundant. The rich and elite are affected the least, and there is no sign of finance trickling down the ladder. The middle class are squeezed, the poor are suffocating.
This month, ARC in Stockton will feature a magnificent commentary by Proto-Type Theatre as they present ‘The Audit’ – a story telling how a nation raised their voices to protest the true value of money and the human cost of greed. Using original text, performance, film, music and animation, ‘The Audit’ is about finding strength, overcoming a world designed to keep us docile, and how collective power can move a mountain.
“A story telling how a nation raised their voices to protest the true value of money and the human cost of greed”
This contemporary, politics-examining play is Proto-Type’s second theatrical work, following previous hit ‘A Machine they’re Secretly Building’ which was, to quote The Guardian: “A smartly intelligent hour-long whizz through the world of surveillance.”
‘The Audit’ is priced uniquely in that, upon booking tickets online, obligatory payment is only after the end of the act and the price is subjective to your feelings and experience for the act.
Proto-Type Theatre’s ‘The Audit’ will be revealing their political commentary at ARC in Stockton on Tuesday 10th July. The production will begin at 19:00 and seating is on an unreserved basis. Advance tickets can be booked online at arconline.co.uk following their “Pay What You Decide” scheme. The play will also be British Sign Language interpreted.
