featured: Smother Hysteria
It’s quarterly sales day. The most holy of days.
Everything is going divinely.
In Manderson-Galvin’s pop-culture soaked horror, we spend an unfeasible 30 minutes as a character goes from shoelace caught in the escalator, to a pulpy stain on a house-wive’s pumps. Ludicrous flights of fancy take the viewer across the world and to the abject present, as consumer culture, and corporate colonialism takes another victim.
ABOUT MANDERSON-GALVIN’S OTHER WORK
“more WTFs-per-minute than I previously thought possible. Loved it.”
“violently pushing against theatrical boundaries…
an almost vicious refusal to permit its audience to become bored.”
“Not your average night out at the theatre: completely present in the immediacy of its delivery and what he gives of himself. MKA!”
