In a place you know. In a time not far away. You are being watched. They are listening in. And the citizens are rioting. The government has imposed a curfew to be set in place tonight. Follow Archie and Fay, an older man and a younger woman, as they attempt to form a connection in a world that is fast-falling apart around them.

Brisbane’s brightest rising star Anna McGahan (Underbelly: Razor) turns her talent to the stage debuting a theatrical voice that strikes hot somewhere between George Orwell and Lars Von Trier.

Fast-paced and rapidly-shifting, this quickfire work – brought to life by emerging director Melanie Wild – hurtles five different relationships against a fierce and strangely familiar political climate as the world around the play seeks to silence the performance.
