“Don’t respond, hold my breath, move the sofa away from the wall, and lay down in the gap made between, and hide. And wait. And when they go, poke my fingers out the letterbox. Stretch them wide. Feel the cold of the air. And think, if I left them there long enough, the wolves might come, and eat me piece by piece.”
She’s standing in what used to be her bedroom. She’s come back to reclaim what she buried. The car waits outside.
On debt, eviction, childhood, and the thing under the floorboards. On what remains, long after you’ve paid it off.
After 2014’s multi award-winning Nothing and 2015’s Some People Talk About Violence, Barrel Organ return with their third show. Anyone’s Guess How We Got Here is a road-trip. A haunted-house. A bedtime story. A photo-album. An ‘80s fantasy film. A demolition project. A riot.
“New writing meets Forced Entertainment” – Exeunt
“This young company are the future” – The Guardian
Commissioned by and developed at Camden People’s Theatre, with support from Manchester Royal Exchange and Arts Council England.
About the company
Barrel Organ work collaboratively and collectively to create politically engaged theatre. Their style is inherently, self-consciously theatrical. They draw attention to the context of ‘theatre’ and highlight the audience’s relationship to their surroundings. They create pieces which engage with the audience and ask them to interrogate 21st-century culture. Though stylistically minimal, our theatre never underestimates the audience’s intelligence. They are proud to be associate artists at Camden People’s Theatre.
