She was doing okay. She had a good job, a great relationship, a nice little flat with cheap wine in the fridge and expensive cushions on the sofa. She was being everything to everyone and juggling all the things that keep a person afloat, head above water, swimming not sinking.

Into Thin Air explores the increasing pressure on everyone to succeed at everything. It looks at when ambition moves from a positive motivator to become the weight of expectation and an inability to live in and enjoy the present. Using tight ensemble performance and magical-realism, Precious Cargo presents a slick, intelligent exploration of how we cope in an increasingly pressurised world.
