'Checking Out' and '16 Minutes' - One Night, Two Plays

23rd May 2017

'Checking out', written by Jo Chandler, is the story of Sandra’s visit to her successful daughter, Kerry-Ann. But tensions soon arise as it is revealed just how embarrassed Kerry-Ann is that her mother acts so crassly and is happy to work at a supermarket, whereas Kerry-Ann has pulled herself up the social ladder. But is all as it seems?

'16 minutes' written by Matteo Pasquini, centres around Ulin, who returns home, having lived in “The South”, and who meets up with long-time friend, Mabur, to have lunch. Ulin realises that there have been many changes, both in his country and his friend and strange new rules introduced by the government "to enhance the happiness and the safety of the people" include how long the national dish should be cooked for!

This dark drama will challenge your perceptions on the way modern ‘spin’ government works.

The ticket price for this show will include a drink in the KS Paradijs bar directly after the performance. Enjoy a drink on us as your discuss the shows!
