Nuclear Family (Sunday’s Child and Fever Dream)
By Aida Rocci | Published on Friday 26 August 2016
“What would you do?” says the poster for ‘Nuclear Family’. That is the hook of this show: you, along with the other audience members, get to decide how the performance will play out. However, destiny is fixed and it’s a dire destiny indeed – nuclear catastrophe and death. You’ll follow the story of two siblings, who work as guards at a nuclear plant, on the night of the tragedy. A hybrid between theatre and an escape the room game, ‘Nuclear Family’ comes from an exciting, well-developed idea, although the plot is not very plausible. Be prepared to participate, argue, resent the process of democracy (even if you cannot avoid the fatal end) and leave feeling responsible for a nuclear disaster.
Assembly Roxy, until 29 Aug.
