Following a sell-out performance in CPT’s Sprint Festival 2019 and fresh from its international transfer to the National Theatre of Iceland, MOJAVE returns for one night only!
Presented by Citizens Band Radio
In the middle of the Mojave Desert, dozens of miles from the nearest pavement, alone phone booth stands on a dirt road. One evening, in the mid-1990’s, the phone starts ringing…
MOJAVE is a devised piece of multimedia theatre which incorporates a live DJ score, physical theatre and projection to tell this incredible true story. Based entirely on real transcripts and audio recordings, we follow Goddfrey ‘Doc’ Daniels as his singular obsession with calling a phone number in the back of a magazine leads to the world’s first viral cult sensation.
MOJAVE tells the true story of the Mojave Desert phone booth: how it was discovered, how it rose to cult status and how it became a place where being miles away from civilisation was the only way to feel connected.
“Mojave is a stunningly filmic piece of theatre that brings together nostalgia for the early days of the Internet, the fun of 90s slacker comedies and the quirkiness of rural America to delightful effect.” ★★★★ – Varsity
“a strangely endearing tale about human fascination and anonymous connection” ★★★★ – The Tab
