"Exquisite noodling"

Ed Collier, China Plate

It’s ridiculous, painful, generous. But why are they in boxes?

There’s Something Missing is a funny, physical and thought-provoking exploration of being male, here and now. Two men perform a show within two wooden boxes – dancing, singing and talking about dying bees, daughters and darkness. Think Waiting for Godot meets The IT Crowd.

They sit surrounded by darkness: one drifting in and out of another world, the other wrapping himself up in irrelevant pedantic details. They ask: “What is it that you see, that I don’t?” 

There’s Something Missing is designed to play in intimate spaces, with a minimal scenographic and technical set-up. The show lasts just over an hour and is appropriate for adults and young people aged 15+.
