THE AUDIT (OR ICELAND, A MODERN MYTH)

Tue 13th Mar - Tue 13th Mar

There’s a shadow coming, across the sea. Long and terrifying. The vultures are circling, the wolves are howling… how can we weather this storm?

The global economy is a mess. The crash has landed, the tide’s swept out, and it’s taken our hope with it. There’s less in our pockets and more to be spent. The rich have got richer, the middle’s squeezed tight, and the poor are being dragged ever downwards.
With the true value of money and the human cost of greed firmly in their sights, tell the story of how a nation raised their voices in protest and railed against the currents.
Using original text, performance, film, music and animation, is about finding strength, overcoming a world designed to keep us docile, and how collective power can move a mountain – even if only a little.

The Audit was commissioned by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, ARC (Stockton), Oxford Playhouse, Lancaster Arts at Lancaster University, hAb/
Word of Warning (Manchester) and artsdepot (London). Supported by Tramway (Glasgow), Curve (Leicester) and Arts Council England.

**** This is coolly reasoned theatre, produced by Proto-type Theater with stylish aplomb.

Lyn Gardner THE GUARDIAN

**** The kind of theatre that seeps into the sub-conscious.
