A UK Premiere from international innovators, Forced Entertainment.


Two performers conjure an extraordinary performance in a collaborative and competitive act of description.

From vast explosions to sub-atomic particles with daily life, political interludes and cabaret turns in between, no event is too large or un-stageable for the protagonists, whose game of virtual theatre takes the audience on a roller coaster ride, celebrating the power of language to make things happen.

Provocative, intimate and comical,  Dirty Work (The Late Shift) exposes a world in which real life is presented as spectacle.

Forced Entertainment re-imagine their 1998 performance for contemporary times, co-opting the imagination of the audience to fill the stage with a delirium of images, scenes and events in bewildering and unnerving succession.

 

'One of Britain's greatest theatre companies'
The Guardian


'Forced Entertainment has been pulling the rug from under theatregoers’ feet for 20 years. They’re not about to stop exploding audience expectations.'
The Times

'Near legendary. At the forefront of performance and innovation'
