Theatre to make you thinkGordon has worked hard to get where he is. He’s on the verge of a massive promotion at one of the Big Six energy companies. His wife Serena has worked hard too, and now dreams of a bigger house, a slimmer body, a happier life. But behind their perfect front door, light bulbs are blowing, the drains keep blocking and a phone inexplicably refuses to charge. Not to mention that daughter Rachel’s adored toy polar bear is nowhere to be found. As Gordon chases the spectres behind these mysterious events, he spirals out of control and the family are forced to ask whether the life they desire is worth its cost.
Hot on the heels of critically acclaimed work at the National Theatre (Dara, Liolà, Table) Tanya Ronder has been commissioned by the Bush Theatre to write this funny and surreal new family drama about the power of the individual in a world obscured by politics.
