Finlay Bain’s Living A Little is to transfer to the King’s Head Theatre for a limited season from May 6 to 14th 2017. This absurd comedy drama, filled with booze and obscenities, garnered exceptional reviews and standing ovations at both the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Vault Festival.
With not a zombie in sight, we are taken into a sanctuary of normality while the outside world rots. The play questions what it is to be alive; to be human, and what you would do if you thought today was your last. In a secure and stockpiled flat, complete with a TV, a sound system, video games, and enough alcohol to host a Scottish wedding, we meet best mates Rob, an ill-mannered, politically incorrect Scottish lad, and Paul, the gayest straight man ever. The arrival of battle hardened Penelope is the catalyst of the piece as she challenges their way of life whilst seeking the relative comfort and safety she needs, after living out in the wild of a zombie apocalypse.
Fresh from an acclaimed season at the 2017 VAULT Festival, where it picked up an Origins Award for Outstanding New Work, Living a Little will be produced by Riot House Theatre and the creators of the award-winning Trainspotting Live, In Your Face Theatre.
