Winners and Losers: Theatre Replacement and Neworld Theatre
“…Hands down, one of the most innovative, interesting and brutal theatre pieces I’ve ever seen” Jo Ledingham
Sept 26 - Sept 29: Project Arts Centre (Cube)
Winners and Losers begins as a conversation between lifelong friends. Theatre artists Marcus Youssef and James Long sit at a table and play a game they made up, naming people, places and things and debating whether they are winners or losers.
But as the competition heats up things get personal. The focus of debate shifts from Pamela Anderson, microwave ovens and Goldman Sachs to social class and family histories, and the ruthless logic of capitalism that the players had embraced is brought to bear on their closest and most personal relationships.
Combining scripted and improvised performance, Winners and Losers questions whether one friendship can survive, or even be strengthened by, such excruciating honesty.
Contains strong language.
