OPT OUT BY KATY DAVIES

A new play, performed with mics as part of London's VAULT Festival's Variety Bite Night on Sunday 7th Feb at The Suffolk Punch, VAULT festival's pop-up restaurant (show time is 17.30).

Set in a dystopian future, this dark and comic work has echoes of the pinteresque. It asks the question: how many bureaucratic forms would you fill in to live forever, and would you read all the T&Cs?

Can be script in hand.

Fee: £50  (including 3 hours rehearsal max on 6/2/16)

Character breakdown

Dr Fisher: Male, early to late 40s, stern, uncompromising, matter of fact. 
Mr Jones: Male, early to late 40s, office worker, delusions of grandeur, revels in the mundane, capable of compassion.
