Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Exodus

Author(s): Uma Nada-Rajah
Company: National Theatre of Scotland
Running time: 1h 25min approx

Directed by the National Theatre of Scotland’s Associate Director Debbie Hannan, Exodus is a dark, surreal comedy, ready to shamelessly ridicule the systems of power.

In her bid to become the country’s leader, Home Secretary Asiya Rao prepares to make a major policy announcement that will establish her as the front-runner of the political race.

Alongside her cut-throat and calculating advisor Phoebe, she embarks on a publicity stunt starting with a photo shoot by the white cliffs of Dover. But rather than the tide washing her reputation clean, something else washes up… An omen or an opportunity?

The women are determined to keep their eyes on the prize, no matter the cost, even if it’s a human one.
