Theatre Absolute invite you to 'CHOKE', the 6th performance work as part of the 'Are We Where We Are' programme, written by Artistic Director Chris O'Connell.
Rob’s made a twelve-hour journey, buttoned up in a ball of five coats begged from a bunch of strangers. He’s hitchhiked in sub-zero temperatures to the edge of nowhere because he just can’t stand it any longer, and because he has the strangest, most absurd request…Exploring the value, plausibility, and real-time effects of altruism in the shadow of a neo-liberal world, Choke tells the story of lifelong friends Rob and Stu, each staring into the gap between who they thought they were, and who they are now.
Please note that this performance contains strong language.
