Description

There's Something Missing, is a two-person physical (and sometimes funny) contemporary piece of confessional theatre that discusses identity. Through the use of absurdism and autobiographical experience, the show explores our current relevance and asks, are we playing at being gods? What have we got left to offer? Is it time for us to sit down and shut up?

Strange Futures is a new company emerging from University of Worcester's innovative MTheatre in Touring Theatre aiming to provide the tools for new young companies looking to establish themselves in a competitive world.

Engaging, absurd, funny, thoughtful - worth seeing this new company is Zoo's new venue (it's certainly worth the effort to find).

Inventive and funny show about masculinity today, very clever use of set and excellent performances. Highly recommended, ideal for audiences who like their shows bite-sized, thought-provoking and entertaining.

A beautiful sensitive work about men. It's touching & funny & well crafted & it opens questions but forces no conclusions. Some tear jerking performances but some wit and intelligence too.

What exactly it is that's missing from this absurdist two-hander by the University of Worcester-based Strange Futures company is never actually made clear, although if we were to take a guess, we might say that a proper stage to perform it on would be a start. ...
