‘Futureproof’ opens this week at Project Arts Centre!

Fresh from its fantastic run at The Everyman as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2017, the freaks of Riley's Odditorium are hitting the road again - 'Futureproof' opens at Project Arts Centre, Dublin on Tuesday, 27 June!

★★★★ "Curious, entertaining, and thought-provoking play" Irish Examiner
★★★★ "Poignant, funny and incredibly insightful" The Arts Review

After a fantastic run at The Everyman as part of this year's Cork Midsummer Festival, Lynda Radley's Futureproof is now open at Project Arts Centre, Dublin, running until Saturday 1 July! Just 4 more chances to meet the freaks of Riley’s Odditorium!

George/Georgina, a hermaphrodite; Countess Marketa, an armless bearded lady; Tiny, the world’s fattest man; Millie and Lillie, the Siamese twins and Serena the mermaid. This travelling freak show is nearing the end of the road, with fewer and fewer people buying tickets to the show. Futureproof is about their quest to find the answer to the age old question of performance: how to give audiences what they want?

Acclaimed during its award-winning first run in Scotland in 2011, Futureproof asks us to think about the struggle for self-hood and bodily autonomy; a theme which continues to have relevance in Ireland today. If you missed this stunning production in Cork you can catch it at Project Arts Centre until Sat 1 July.
