Dead Static is a science fiction play comedy written by Steve Jordan. With reviews likening it to mix of Red Dwarf and Steptoe and Son, the Hen and Chickens Theatre in Islington may well host one of the strangest plays yet. Running from 11th-15th December tickets are available from http://www.henandchickens.com or http://www.manmoth.co.uk.
Check out the press release below.
The year is – the future. Two complete strangers wake up on a tiny shuttle in the middle of deep space. Tyler (Cliff Chapman), a sarcastic, over-confident entrepreneur, finds himself trapped with Gary (Adam Joselyn), an insufferably chirpy conman. The Syndicate has sentenced them both to death – they have one hour before their shuttle plunges nose-first into the asteroid belt. Can they work together to survive? Are they doomed to irritate each other into oblivion? Or will they thwart an evil empire in time for tea and Deal or No Deal? (Yup, it’s still a thing).
