The Future History
of the British Isles
AN IMMERSIVE SKETCH SHOW ABOUT THE APOCALYPSE
Is this the end? Will I die alone? Did I leave the oven on?
‘The League of Gentlemen’ meets ‘Brass Eye’, FUTURE HISTORY is an immersive narrative-led sketch show that takes a sideways glance at the apocalypse. Set in a future UK divided against itself, Future History mythologises a future in which the very worst has happened.
FUTURE HISTORY the stage show combines sketch comedy, an original musical score and clownish physical play; with the audience thrown in amongst the chaos.
Scratch previews of the show were presented at the HopBarn (Southwell), the Television Workshop (Nottingham) and Attenborough Arts Centre (Leicester) in July 2019.
