‘Owdyado Theatre present psychological drama in Seend

Story posted on

‘Owdyado Theatre present ‘Above Bored’ at Seend Community Centre on Saturday 20th September, 

Picture the situation – A police interrogation room. A woman has been detained for questioning after her boss is found dead in suspicious circumstances.  In a room down the hall, her colleague also awaits an interview. Just routine questions. Just routine.

But what if the monotony of routine was responsible for pushing one of them over the edge? When does bored become bored to death (albeit someone else’s death)? After all, perhaps it’s not unusual for employees of an adhesive supply company to feel a little… stuck.

‘Above Bored’ is an original psychological drama with a wide streak of dark comedy, written by Charlotte Bister and Daniel Richards (‘Wrongdoings and Wake-Up Calls at the Stop-Off Motel’) and directed by Simon Harvey (‘Kneehigh’, o-region). A captivating two-hander where the actors double as both cops and suspects,

‘Owdyado present a character-driven piece about two individuals who, on the surface appear to be happy, diligent employees. However, in the midst of the claustrophobia of the interrogation room and the persistent questioning of two sharp-witted detectives, cracks in their façade begin to appear – cracks that hint at underlying disillusionment and resentment.

‘Above Board’ at Seend Community Centre, Saturday 20th September, 7.30pm. Tickets £10 full £8 ‘under 18s’/benefits Box office: 01380 828617.
