A casual meal between friends becomes something far stranger when the group find themselves in a bizarre predicament that forces them to face who they really are. Created afresh each night in a radically naturalistic style, this hilarious and terrifying work picks apart the minutiae of social behavior to reveal the horror that lies beneath it.
Exterminating Angel-an improvisation is an uncomfortably close study of the invisible restrictions that both surround us and hold us together. It is a surreal almost documentary vision of the way an apathetic new generation of Britons relate to each other and the world around them.
The play is structured, yet the content within it is newly improvised each time it is performed. This radically naturalistic method has been developed with the same ensemble of actors over a three -year period of workshops and rehearsals, supported by The Jerwood Space, The Young Vic, The Nuffield Theatre Southampton and the Arts Council of England.
Having enthralled audiences on a sold-out regional tour funded by the Arts Council of England, the play now comes to The Tristan Bates Theatre for a limited week-long run.
