This is a show about fear. About how it influences everything we do. And about how we still pretend it isn’t there. It’s about the stuff you miss out on because you’re scared and the stuff that fear forces you into against your will.
It’s a show about exactly how long you’d need to leave your child unattended before a paedophile kidnapped them (500,000 years) and how many pets people killed in the first four days of the second world war (400,000).
From monsters under the bed to Muslim extremism, it’s a show about our closest invisible frenemy and how it secretly controls our lives.
Rebecca’s hit previous show The Class Project was “a thoughtful and moving piece about social mobility, class warfare… and what happens when you lose your real voice” (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian) and “a thought-provoking autobiographical exploration of the relationship between accent and class” (4*, The Stage).
How To Live Dangerously is a Theatre in the Mill commission, produced by Arch 468, funded by Arts Council England and supported by Derby Theatre.
Age rating: 14+.
