The door opens, the door closes. Ross comes home from his tedious office job just as Bibi leaves for another night behind the bar. This is what being twenty-something in 2019 is like: sharing a flat, a pessimistic outlook on the future, and a life with your best friend, but barely seeing each other. It isn’t the dream. It is barely even enough, but it’s what they have. A flat that is a home, a future that is yet to be decided, and a life that’s worth living. When their precarious balance is disturbed, their small family has to prove its worth.
This spoken word theatre show deals with found family and the socio-economic struggles of a generation that was promised the universe, but was gifted a broken world.
Make/Shift is touring spoken word events across the UK & Ireland from April 2019 onwards. Interested in booking the show? E-mail ITWspokenwordtheatre@gmail.com for a touring pack.
Preview from The Sunday Post
"I once again found myself leaving the theatre feeling inspired after seeing something so refreshing and new. I really hope that I get the chance to see more of In The Works and more of this style of theatre."
Make/Shift is a 25 minute spoken word theatre piece. It is the fourth poetic collaboration between Ross McFarlane and Bibi June. The show was funded by a Disrupter Grant from the Hunter Foundation and Creative Scotland.
