#Tweetingit: Press notice in 140 characters – My favourite – new immersive theatre!
Four misshapen beings huddle over a table.
They plan. Endlessly planning. Waiting…
waiting for you.
DEVISED & DESIGNED BY GRUFF THEATRE.
THE SPACE, ISLE OF DOGS.
Unable to leave, separated from normality, longing for some form of interaction The Beings invite guests into their absurd world, where logic is governed by instruction and games. The forthcoming and ever failing hosts, armed with a warped view of social etiquette, bend over backwards to entertain their coveted guests. Grim affairs in the drawing room, rumpus pleasures in the parlour and peculiar processions await those invited. Critiquing both British social class and social mask, Instructionally Invited allows an audience to witness what happens when social conventions fall apart and become swept away in the madness that ensues.
“Flitting between wonderfully grotesque and deeply macabre, INSTRUCTIONALLY INVITED is an ingenious piece of theatre from a young company that surely has great things in its future. A triumph!” Alexa Reid, Punchdrunk
