"An 80 minute-show that makes the brain both hurt and buzz"

The Scotsman
"Thorpe and director Rachel Chavkin energetically take a liberal Fringe audience to the edge of the abyss of belief and hang them over the side in a conversation for our times"
The Independent

We all have a nationality.

Or almost all of us.

Status is a show about someone who doesn’t want his anymore. About running away from the national story you’re given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you try to give it up.

Springing from globe-spanning conversations about nationality, Status is a journey of attempted escape – with songs.

A new show from the multiple Fringe First winning team that created Confirmation.

BSL performance on the 16th  August.

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Warwick Arts Centre and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg.
