An Uncanny production makes its way to Mansfield

Leeds-based Uncanny Theatre are touring a brand new work this autumn, thanks to funding through the Arts Council, and making their way to the Create Theatre in Mansfield.

Instructions for a Better Life is on Thursday 7 November and is part thriller and part comedic romp through human psychology. In contrast to their last piece, Optimism, which used new digital technology, Instructions for a Better Life is endearingly low tech – using old school technology such as overhead projectors.

Visually arresting and absurdly funny this new show sheds light on some of our more bizarre human behaviour in an attempt to unpick the oddity of superstitious thinking.

Why do we touch wood, salute magpies or avoid walking under ladders or opening umbrellas indoors?

The show is supported by stage@leeds, Oval House and East Street Arts and will be touring to 14 venues across the UK with 16 performances.

Iain Bloomfield, artistic director of Bradford Theatre in the Mill, dubs Uncanny’s work as: “Unfailingly funny and inventive with just enough darkness to make for something a great deal more than just a belly laugh, although there are those aplenty.”

Uncanny will perform at The Create on Thursday 7 November and tickets can be purchased online at www.createtheatre.co.uk or by calling 01623 413363.
