China Plate and Staatstheater Mainz present

STATUS

Written by Chris Thorpe, developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin.

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Warwick Arts Centre and Les Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg and supported by the British Council, Goethe-Institut London and the Collaborative Touring Network.

 

We all have a nationality.

Or almost all of us.

Status is a show about someone who doesn't want his any more. About running away from the national story you're given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up.

A globe-spanning journey of attempted escape, with songs along the way. Status springs from conversations about who we might be, and whether your country needs you more than you might need it.

A new show from the multi Fringe First winning team that created Confirmation: written and performed by Chris Thorpe (Unlimited Theatre, Third Angel) developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin (The TEAM).

An absolutely compelling performance from a man who is fast becoming one of the most powerful performers in the UK. ★★★★ The Scotsman on Confirmation
