Description

A couple whose relationship just isn't working. They aren't listening to each other, they aren't having any fun. It's unsustainable. It can't go on like this. Then, just when things can't get any worse, a total climate apocalypse hits, threatening all life on earth. Our couple must work together to survive – but will it be enough to stop them from breaking apart? Told through music-theatre, We Just Need to Get Through This explores the limits of language, our ability to adapt and humanity's enduring search for love.

This show was intimate, raw and emotional. The exploration of relationships through crisis using the example of climate change, although exaggerated, was a painful reminder of the struggles we are all currently facing. The use of sound to evoke emotion was magic and I felt like I could relate my life so easily to the struggles of the characters, which is often hard to do in theatre especially in the sort of dystopian world they had created. This show is like reliving your parents divorce as an adult, or like watching a friend go through a really nasty breakup in the way that right from the beginning you are able to relate to the characters and every conversation and piece of music was just spot on. There are funny moments, which personally I struggled to see the need for or understand within the context, yet despite this I enjoyed them. It was very emotional, yet beautiful and upon leaving I left with a greater appreciation for the world we are currently living in, and more empathy for relationship struggles. This is not a cheery watch, but a necessary one in our current world.

This strikingly inspired piece from the Demo Theatre Collective pushes the boundaries of theatre performance and musical expression by intertwining the two mediums in a wholly unique way.
