Theatre: On The Outskirts of a Large Event

Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster University LA1 4YW

An iceberg arrives at a tropical island. The inhabitants search for someone to blame for the unlikely visitor; this is a place where scapegoating is a reflex. On the Outskirts of a Large Event mixes cinematic projection, surround sound and spoken word to form a piece of theatre as strange and bright as a lump of ice. The Bare Project is a Sheffield based theatre and interactive arts company who want to push our sense of what is real and unreal.

This performance is a scratch version of the piece following a two-week rehearsal period. Feedback from the audience would be very helpful to guide us in our final week of rehearsals!

Advance tickets: Adults £8, Seniors, unemployed and disabled (essential companion free) £7.20, students and under 26s £5. To book call the box office on 01524 594151 or visit
