The Pursuit of Success

Our debut comedy supported by Theatre Deli, Kilden Theatre (Norway) and ARC Stockton

1-112.jpg

Packed with guts and heart, The Pursuit of Success is a physical and topical devised show that wonders what happens to your story when someone else holds the pen? Through the story of a screenwriter, with the ambition to share the true story of pilot pilot Amy Johnson, this surreal show explores female representation and ambition in the 1930's as well as today.

Lobster Frock’s debut play has a distinct style which fuses vocal looping, physical storytelling and comedy. By skillfully and shamefully dissecting sexism and feminism, can we we start to understand how we have reached the daily prejudices which we accept as normal?

Can we fight the power?

Or have we already lost?
