Unexploded Ordnances (UXO) by Split Britches

Presented by Bealtaine Festival in association with Live Collision

Fri 4 May, 8pm

€14/conc.€12

Combining a Dr Strangelove-inspired performance with a daring forum for public conversation, Unexploded Ordnances (UXO) explores ageing, anxiety, hidden desires and how to look forward when the future is uncertain.
In our Situation Room, twelve audience members are invited to become a Council of Elders to discuss the global issues of the day, as the company weave in satirical insights and humour.
Combining a Dr Strangelove-inspired performance with a daring forum for public conversation, Unexploded Ordnances (UXO) explores ageing, anxiety, hidden desires and how to look forward when the future is uncertain.
Adopting the characters of a bombastic general and ineffectual president, Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver of Split Britches lace this interactive piece with both playful urgency and lethargy, encouraging discussion about the political landscape. The pioneering theatre- makers see unexploded ordnances as a metaphor for the unexplored potential in elders and hope to uncover buried resources in us all.

Running time: 1 hr 15 minutes
