Unexploded Ordnances (UXO)
Take Me Somewhere brings iconic lesbian-feminist theatre company, Split Britches to Platform for the 2018 Take Me Somewhere festival!
About Unexploded Ordnances (UXO)
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Presented by Take Me Somewhere, National Theatre of Scotland and Platform with support from Luminate and Outspoken Arts Scotland.
Combining a Dr Strangelove-inspired performance with a daring forum for public conversation, UXO explores ageing, anxiety, hidden desires and how to look forward when the future is uncertain.
In the Situation Room, twelve audience members are invited to become a Council of Elders to discuss the global issues of the day, as the company weave in satirical insights and humour. Adopting the characters of a bombastic general and ineffectual president, Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver (Split Britches) lace this interactive piece with both playful urgency and lethargy, encouraging discussion about the political landscape.
