Deadpan Theatre will present Artemis Fitzalan Howard’s new play Gate at the Cockpit Theatre from the 13th to the 24th September.
Directed by Sadie Spencer, Artemis Fitzalan Howard’s latest play challenges the theories of the great ‘thinkers’ such as when evolutionists tell us that we’re just trying to spread our genes, economists tell us that all we do is maximize our self-interest, and psychologists tell us that we just want to get laid – do we concentrate on material desires or do wider spiritual beliefs count?
It is an average Thursday morning at ‘The Gate’ in Wapping and, like every first-born child in the generations before her, Eve is guarding it carefully. It’s going to be a busy day- there are four new appointments booked in. The trouble is none of the clients knew they were coming… because to reach the gates you have to be dead.
The production will be designed by Alex Berry and is produced at the Cockpit Theatre by Artemis Fitzalan Howard for Deadpan Theatre.
Gate will run at the Cockpit Theatre from the 13th to the 24th September. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://thecockpit.org.uk/show/gate
