Mischief Festivals 2017 Double Bill: The Earthworks & Myth

Mischief Festivals 2017 Double Bill: The Earthworks & Myth

Synopsis

Our creative engine room, The Other Place, continues to nurture the development of new voices at the RSC. The building is always buzzing with rehearsals, costume hire, education work and artistic conversations. Twice a year we fill the building with exciting new theatre in our Mischief Festivals, and the first begins in May.
 
The Earthworks and Myth are presented as a double bill.
24 May - 17 June 2017 
 
The Earthworks
Tom Morton-Smith
“The universe doesn’t care if we know how it works.”
On the eve of the activation of the Large Hadron Collider, two strangers – a journalist and a scientist – share their experiences of loss and hope in a funny but deeply touching one-act play.
Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer, created for the RSC in 2014, was a smash hit, transferring to the West End.
 
Myth
Matt Hartley and Kirsty Housley
From an original idea by Kirsty Housley
“I can only see wrong choices. Things that will make everything worse.”
In one wine-fuelled evening, two couples debate their materialistic lifestyle. As their dinner party descends into chaos, their friendship and their lives are irreparably changed. A theatrical experiment into those things we don’t want to see or say.
