Forced Entertainment's Void Story Opens Tour in Liverpool

WhatsOnStage logo
Following an international tour, Forced Entertainment’s “live performance-come-radio play-come graphic novel” Void Story will tour the UK this autumn.

The production, which is directed by Tim Etchells, will open on 14 and 15 October 2011 at Liverpool's Unity Theatre before visiting venues in Cambridge, Coventry, Aberystwyth, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham and Huddersfield.

Void Story follows a “beleaguered pair of protagonists on a rollercoaster ride through the decimated remains of contemporary culture”.

Navigating one terrible cityscape after another, mugged, shot at and bitten by insects, pursued through subterranean tunnel systems, stowed away in refrigerated transport, shacked up in haunted hotels and lost in wildernesses, backstreets and bewildering funfairs, they travel to the centre of a night so intense that there are no stars to be seen.

Since forming in 1984, Forced Entertainment have established themselves as leading proponents of avant-garde and experimental theatre. Void Story is performed by Robin Arthur, Richard Lowdon, Cathy Naden, and Terry O’Connor.
