The Room in the Elephant
  • Brighton Fringe

This provocative comedy begins with two young men struggling to come up with ideas for a show they are performing the following week. They decide that the show will be an exact re-creation of their current conversation. A third, older performer arrives and says this sounds like "some awful, self- referential bullshit" and they tell him "And you'll say that in the actual show!" Following the logic of this premise leads to conversations about art, ambition, evolution and masculinity, and shifting realisations about where and when the show is actually set, and who these men really are.
