George has been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Overview

“My meeting with J, (all praise him), went very, very well. I am able to feed my family with fresh veg and good meats. The car that I am driving is also in the latest style and my closet is full of desirables. I am happy.”

Meet George. George has been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with the mysterious J. He says goodbye to his mother, packs his bag, gets a haircut and sets off for the big city.

This surrealist, pitch-black piece of physical theatre is an insight into the ways the millennial generation deals with the side effects of ambition. We are more comfortable yet more insecure than we’ve ever been. We watch on-demand TV on leather sofas in freezing houses that we can’t afford. We hop from interview to placement to prestigious unpaid opportunity like we’re in competition with everyone in the world.

As George leaves his home and makes his way through the city, Contingency Theatre’s visually stunning choreography and live music transports the audience into a dystopia that feels all too familiar…
