WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A police interrogation room. A woman has been detained for questioning after her boss is found dead in suspicious circumstances. In a room down the hall, her colleague also awaits an interview. Just routine questions. Just routine. But what if the monotony of routine was responsible for pushing one of them over the edge? When does bored become bored to death (albeit someone else's death)? After all, perhaps it's not unusual for employees of an adhesive supply company to feel a little... stuck. Above Bored is an original psychological drama directed by Simon Harvey (Kneehigh o-region) that explores the themes of ritual and performance. A captivating two-hander where the actors double as both cops and suspects, ?Owdyado present a character-driven piece about two individuals who, on the surface appear to be happy, diligent employees. However, in the midst of the claustrophobia of the interrogation room and the persistent questioning of two sharp-witted detectives, cracks in their fa?ade begin to appear - cracks that hint at underlying disillusionment and resentment.
