“This is only meant to happen on the news”

Doddy’s lost; radicalised by US bombs falling too close to home. A trade war between the US and Europe escalates; political pollution, consumer excess, desolation, pills and pints pervade.  Security’s breaking down – the terrorists have wiped out the governments, but the Hamshanker in the control room’s clocking the blonde in the biscuit aisle. Home has become a cynical wasteland where even angels flee.  When hope is a cryptic slogan and every move is caught on CCTV, how does anyone find sanctuary amidst the slums?

Through the stench of smoke and feathers, somewhere in a Scotland not far from now, Doddy scavenges for signs, for sense, and the lushes of Brazil.

Brazil is written by Edinburgh-based Ronan O’Donnell and directed by Alex Crampton (OVNV TS Eliot UK/US Exchange Award Winner 2012). It is presented by ProdUse Theatre (associate producer on the recent and critically acclaimed production of Doubt – A Parable at the Southwark Playhouse) and performed by Angus Chisholm.

★★★★ “The enigmatically dark one man performance by Angus Chisholm can be seen as a suitable pre-warning of 1984…a force of tremendous nature…outstanding” – Liverpool Sounds & Vision

“Performed with vigor and expertise, creating a powerful experience for the audience….Chisholm is an extremely talented actor” – Broadway Baby
