The organisation formally known as LPAC will be re-launched under a new name after a consultation which saw 260 students, staff and audience members co-design a new organisational vision and a plan for transformation in four key areas: People, Perception, Programme and Place.
Three fast-paced, funny stories about consumer culture.
“I like having things. I like having lots of things. It reminds me that I’m… Y’know? A person.”
Alice is done with fast fashion.
Ben can’t stop buying trainers.
And Charlie just wants to sell out…one organ at a time.
In an age of retail therapy, climate crisis and click and collect – how does our ‘stuff’ define us? And have we reached peak stuff?
Award-winning theatre company ThickSkin have teamed up with the writing talents of Billie Collins (Too Much World At Once) to produce one of the most visually thrilling and inventive shows you will see this year.
Using live drumming and spectacular video design, this is a timely show for anyone who has ever made an ill-fated impulsive purchase! Directed by ThickSkin’s Neil Bettles (How Not To Drown, Frantic Assembly’s The Unreturning and Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks), Peak Stuff is a tale for modern times.
Commissioned by ThickSkin and Lawrence Batley Theatre. Supported by Shakespeare North Playhouse.
Winner of the New Play Commission Scheme.
