Staged in a caravan at locations around the UK, Mobile is an inventive and intimate piece of verbatim theatre about class, family, aspiration and belonging. Based on personal testimonies collected in community workshops, research by collaborator Prof. Sam Friedman, and the company’s own lives, it explores experiences, benefits and potential costs of social mobility.
When Cindy’s comfortable graduate life begins to unravel, she can’t bring herself to move ‘back home’ and instead finds herself living in her mother’s caravan. As she shares her story, her conflicted thoughts and feelings are joined by the voices of others from all walks of lives.
For an audience of nine people, Mobile incorporates engaging performance, story and ideas alongside stunning digital visuals by The Media Workshop and original music composed by Shane Durrant.
Touring until November 2016. See press release for full details.
