An anthology of seven of the best plays from VAULT Festival 2019, London's biggest and most exciting arts festival.
<i>3 Billion Seconds</i> by Maud Dromgoole is a hilarious, macabre love story about a pregnant couple of activists attempting to offset the carbon footprint of their unborn baby's life.
<i>Alcatraz</i> by Nathan Lucky Wood is a thrilling play about family and social care that follows Sandy on her daring, Christmas mission to emulate Clint Eastwood and bust her gran out of lock-up.
<i>Collapsible</i> by Margaret Perry is a funny, furious monologue about navigating a world that cares so much about you keeping it together, it doesn't notice you falling apart.
<i>Inside Voices</i> by Nabilah Said blends dark comedy and magic realism in its subversive portrayal of three Singaporean Muslim women challenging the bounds of freedom, feminism and faith in a place that isn't home.
<i>Open</i> by Christopher Adams and Timothy Allsop is a frank, refreshing romance that draws on interviews, conversation and private correspondence to explore the authors' real-life open marriage.
<i>Jericho</i> by Malaprop Theatre is an off-kilter, high-energy, form-pushing play about what pro-wrestling and politics have in common.
It asks big questions in weird ways, like what can a pop-culture journalist do to stop the world burning down?
<i>Thrown</i> by Jodi Gray sees a child-psychologist attempting to record what she's spent her whole life trying to forget, as the memories of former patients collide with her own.
