I think I might be the voice of my generation.
Or at least a voice, of a generation.

A piece of experimental storytelling for two performers: the writer, and a different, unprepared, actor at each performance.

A show about culture, capitalism, trying to find the truth, heartbreak, spending the day in your pants, yelling at whatever screen you happen to be watching, touching yourself where you shouldn’t when you think no one else is looking, the writer, the actor, the person sitting next to you, and you. After all, we’re all here, experiencing this together.

About the artists

Olly creates work on the boundary of theatre and live art. His work explores how we connect with each other, both inside and outside of a theatre space, is both optimistic and nihilistic, and draws on a variety of influences, ranging from experimental performance to pop culture, from critical theory to negligent speculation.

He has worked at the Young Vic, The National Theatre, The Bush and was a finalist for the JMK Award. His last show You, Me and the World had sell-out runs in London, Derby and Edinburgh.

“A unique, shining gem of a show, builds a connection with the audience which is enthralling … a young performer who is sure to find greatness” 4★A Younger Theatre

“An emotional rollercoaster that provides a fascinating insight into the lives of others” – The Scotsman

Matthew Evans directs and performs with Gameshow, with whom he has developed The HS2 Project with CPT. He has worked with Tim Etchells, Katie Mitchell and Simon McBurney, and is a fomer winner of the James Menzies-Kitchin Award.
