What if life was a movie?
“Netflix gets 16 million new sign-ups thanks to lockdown” – BBC
In a time of great uncertainty, we’ve turned to Netflix and other mediums to escape the sh*t-show that is 2020, to find comfort in our temporary safe space.
We want you to look at life through another lens.
“Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night” – Bette Davis, ‘It’s All About Eve’
On January 21st 2021, we will reverse engineer film – a medium that draws on life’s beauties and imperfections – turning the camera back on reality at the end of a very strange year.
Cast, shot and premiered in one night, ‘Shoot Me!’ is a Hollywood inspired search for the authentic real you and me. Join us as we step into the frame to tell the story of our own lives – from opening scene to closing credits – on the big (laptop) screen.
Warning: Suitable for ages 16+. Likelihood of strong language and adult themes. Due to the improvised nature of the performance, warnings and triggers for this show cannot be fixed.
HOW TO WATCH
This show will be taking place on Zoom. On the day of the show you will be emailed an exclusive link to the room where the show will commence.
Please remember to book with the same name and email as you will be using on Zoom.
If you are using a different name and email address, you may be turned away as we cannot authenticate you as a patron.
Admission: Pay What You Can.
Pay What You Can is an ‘honesty box’ for the theatre. We and the artists will continue to programme and produce high quality events and ask you to pay what you can afford.
As always, your generosity and support through buying tickets and engaging with our student work astounds us. We’re delighted to be supporting the charity 500 Acts of Kindness this year, with all funds raised through ticket sales going to the charity who support families or organisations in need. Former Coronation Street actor and Take Back Theatre Co-Founder Julie Hesmondhalgh co-founded the organisation in 2019; since then it has raised over £80,000, and continues to go strong.
As a guide, for those in full time employment we would appreciate you paying between £5 and £10. We also understand people’s income can be precarious, hence the free and lower price options.
Please note that all tickets come with a Fatsoma booking fee of 50p.
T@PP Fest is dedicated to the memory of Liam Byrne: maker of extraordinary things.
