PRODUCT DISPLACEMENT by Dom Rowe
Directed by Hannah Drake
Wednesday 14 – Saturday 17 November 2012 – 8pm
The Rondo Theatre
For some, the riots provoked the question: why?
For others, it was more a case of: why not?
The question here is more specific: why is a policeman attacking a giant chicken with a brand new pair of trainers?
Against a backdrop of lawlessness and order, anger and confusion, consumption and greed, acclaimed company Edible Theatre explore the disillusioned lives of ordinary people, hurtling towards each other from either side of a riot shield.
Because when two very different worlds collide with purposeless determination, the only question left is: what damage is done in the craters that get left behind?

After a string of successful productions performed across Bristol, Cheltenham and London, Edible Theatre bring their blackly comic take on modern life to Bath with the debut of Product Displacement. Having previously collaborated with director Hannah Drake on Book Ends (Bristol Old Vic Ferment) and Eddie King’s Unforgettable Tour of the Forgotten (Tobacco Factory), this production marks their first full-length piece together, and forms the culmination of Hannah’s residency at the Rondo Theatre.
The trio (writer Dom Rowe, actress/producer Charlotte Ellis and director Hannah Drake) met as part of the Bristol Old Vic’s 24 Hour Play Challenge (2010), while Product Displacement was originally commissioned as part of Corner Theatre’s Headlines (2011)
