Presented by Clay Party
Outside is about three young friends celebrating the end of a city-mandated curfew, drinking in the living room of their flat before the street party outside kicks off at midnight. It’s a naturalistic black comedy, set in a world that really isn’t too dissimilar to our own. As a company we are debuting with this original piece that plays out the final hour of the city-wide curfew and hopes to challenge how relationships and ambitions are negotiated by gender and the confines of the surrounding world. While the focus is on outside are, in fact, the shackles on our freedom much closer than we think?
Clay Party is a brand new company, founded in collaboration with the Pleasance Trust, championing new voices in writing. Outside is their debut production.
