Set in the kitchen of a house in the suburbs of a city built around a large generator, The Constant Drone examines our relationship to silence, time, apocalypse and waiting. The Drone, an ever present hum created by The Generator, guards the characters from their fear of silence. But as the volume decreases, chaotic unrest draws ever closer.
“An extraordinary piece- inventive and sustained, with echoes of all kinds of things (Beckett, Heathcote Williams, Materlinck, Churchill) and a constantly sharp and witty playfulness about language and the real that it is referencing. A comic-poetic distortion of now.” – Professor Graham White
The Constant Drone performed at The Space @ PRSC from 22nd-24th November.
