Futures Festival – The Washing Machine of Destiny

  • Show Information

Living Room Theatre presents a play full of bonkers ideas with a knockout musical soundtrack, devised and performed by Luca Saunders and Philip Robinson who are both on the autistic spectrum, and directed by Pippa Marriott, who isn’t. Come for a wash, rinse and spin cycle: you’ll emerge refreshed, enlightened and smelling wonderful – can’t guarantee that last one, tbh.

This is a relaxed performance. We know that attention looks different for different bodies and minds. For some people this might involve making noises or moving around. You can leave and come back in at any time. Venue staff and performers will confidently welcome people who move and make noise into the performance space. Ear defenders will be available for anyone to use during the show. These will have been carefully cleaned before each use. There will be an announcement at the start of the show explaining that it is a relaxed performance.

This performance is part of Futures Festival 2023. To find out more and see the full programme, click the button.
