The Forecast

Limbik Theatre's forecast on the future, presented as part of IGNiTE

In a backyard near you, in the not too distant future, four women from four corners of the globe float in mid-air. Fleeing war, poverty and environmental destruction they now have a new job: human garden ornaments. Tethered to their new reality (and each other), this four-way odd couple bicker, banter and are forced to confront what freedom means to them. Inspired by George Saunder's short-story The Semplica Girl Diaries, The Forecast teems with stories, songs, secrets, shadows, giant dresses... and women hanging by a thread.

There will be a post show talk back after the show.

About Limbik Theatre

Limbik creates new theatre work that explores human stories from epic environments. They create through collaboration: between actors, writers, directors, and designers, as well as non-theatre makers who bring unique viewpoints and expertise to our work. Distilling these often unheard voices into atmospheric works of theatre, they investigate complex ethical, socially engaged questions, aiming to encourage debate and dialogue. The company has devised and toured four shows to date: The Harbour, Ghost Town and The Messenger, The Forecast, and collaborated on A Murder of Crows.

IGNiTE is supported using public funding by Bristol City Council and by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
