Friargate Theatre

Tuesday 22 March, 8.15 pm

Displace Yourself Theatre is putting on a show that’s bound to be intense as it transports you to a desolate 2044, where the world is left in a post-apocalyptic mess. This dark futuristic scenario is the backdrop for poetic text, a powerful soundtrack and an interesting, social commentary. For theatre-fanatics, this is one not to miss!
