Statistics Unavailable is an exciting and thought provoking production consisting of four new pieces of writing exploring issues of human interaction, relationships, and social dynamics.
The title refers to the lack of data available concerning adult bullying in the workplace and at home. The production seeks to question and challenge an audience through a range of theatrical genres such as comedy, drama and the downright absurd.
The four pieces by West Midland writers are as follows:
- Over and Out: Two intertwined monologues: secrets and the distress they have caused are slowly revealed.
- Grievance: Dark humour: two employees who both feel wronged, lead their HR rep a merry dance.
- The Diary: Serious drama: a volatile relationship is explored from the points of view of both partners.
- Bullying 101: Comedy; a group of people attend a workshop led by a domineering bully whose methods challenge the participants’ perceptions about their own behaviours, attitudes, and opinions.
The opening performances are being presented as part of BIRMINGHAM FEST 2014 on Saturday 12th July and Sunday 13th July at 5pm. Statistics Unavailable, which has been funded by Arts Council England, will then tour to numerous festivals and events taking place across the country between July and November 2014.
