Set in the kitchen of a house in the suburbs of a city built around a large generator, The Constant Drone examines our relationship to silence, time, apocalypse and waiting. The Drone, an ever present hum created by The Generator, guards the characters from their fear of silence. But as the volume decreases, chaotic unrest draws ever closer.
The Constant Drone will be performed at The Space on Jamaica Street on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th November. Doors open at 7.00 and the performance begins at 7.30pm. The run time is approximately 1hr 45 minutes, including a 15 minute interval.
We regret that there will not be a BSL interpreted or audio description performance available on the current run of The Constant Drone. The building is wheelchair accessible.
Please be aware that this performance has prominent use of constant low level sound, and profanity. Recommended age 15+
“An extraordinary piece- inventive and sustained, with echoes of all kinds of things (Beckett, Heathcote Williams, Materlinck, Churchill) and a constantly sharp and witty playfulness about language and the real that it is referencing. A comic-poetic distortion of now.” – Professor Graham White
