press release

Those of you lucky enough to have witnessed Forced Entertainment at Tramway before will know that only they are capable of attempting to tell the ‘story of mankind’ in one theatre production.

Complete with over-enthused cavemen in bad wigs, this epic narrative steers us through the story of mankind from cave to shopping mall, and moves beyond the confines of its incomplete mock-history to touch on memory, mortality, the past, the future and the intricate detail of our own lives.

With their deserved reputation for work that is provocative, exciting and frequently disconcerting, Forced Entertainment’s newest theatre piece follows the line of 2004’s acclaimed Bloody Mess, alternating between chaotic spectacle and fragile intimacy and continuing the company’s exploration of theatre as a unique space of encounter between performers and audience.
