Bristol Old Vic are proud to announce the forth-coming arrival of random. Debbie Tucker Green’s fast-paced, raw and uniquely delivered script will amuse and touch in equal measure as it follows its sell-out performance at the Royal Court with a trip into the South West. Performed by a single actor on a bare stage, playing each member of a family, random is a contemporary play with current themes – but is not just ‘issue theatre’. It’s a human story of family and loss.Starting off as a regular day in the life of a black family – we are invited into their funny and familiar world and escorted through their nine to five routine. One random act changes everything. With the police knocking at the door – the audience are whisked into an all too common, urban tragedy which will resonate with the fears and concerns of everybody living in modern Britain.No image or word is wasted – this concise, sharp and engaging script unfolds with surgical precision in less than an hour but leaves you exhausted and satisfied. With fantastic reviews from its previous run, this is a must-see for those who love fresh and relevant theatre.
