The Various Lives of Infinite Nullity
“Hell goes round and round. In shape it is circular and by nature it is interminable and very nearly UNBEARABLE"
Join a suicide support group as they meet to reflect upon their lives in the afterlife.
Ignoring the gruesome symptoms of their own deaths, three characters guide us through the strange and disquieting landscape they now inhabit. A plastic wasteland where domestic disputes last thousands of years, death doesn't work and milk-bottle-slurping children make the rules. A place of bloodbaths, shopping lists, premature burials and polite tea drinking.
Award winning Clout Theatre return with their trademark absurdism and dark clowning in this physically bold, visually arresting and fiercely ironic piece about human frailty and the essential futility of our lives.
