After a successful run at the Camden People’s Theatre in 2016, CTRL+ALT+DELETE by Emma Packer returns as part of FIRST Festival of Solo Performance 2017 at the Tristan Bates Theatre.
Amy Jones from Brixton is an emotionally charged girl with a strong political heart. She challenges the injustices of the world, where war rips communities apart, equality isn’t universal and your biggest enemies are sometimes the very ones who brought you into the world.
CTRL+ALT+DELETE examines and draws parallels between the control and abuse within a domestic setting and in the wider society from the Government, Media and the Police. It addresses issues including immigration, the financial crisis, 2011 riots, the war on terrorism and the housing crisis.
A child’s need for their mother’s love is a primal driving force. It doesn’t diminish with unavailability, it coexists with the terrible and damaging understanding that the one person who is supposed to love you without condition doesn’t. CTRL+ALT+DELETEexplores the myth that mothers are all loving and protective of their children which serves to isolate us from the truth and the harsh realities of life. Intertwining two very different worlds, it shows that maybe things aren’t as different as they first appear.
CTRL+ALT+DELETE plays the Tristan Bates Theatre as part of FIRST Festival of Solo Performance 2017 from 27 – 28 April. For more information and to book tickets, please see the website.
