Alexandra Badea’s Incisive 'The Pulverised' Moves to York Theatre Royal

31/05 - 10/06/2017 @ York Theatre Royal - The Studio, St Leonard's Place, York YO1 7HD

After a successful and extended London run at the Arcola Theatre, Alexandra Badea's "The Pulverised" moves to York Theatre Royal, showing from 31 May to 10 June. In a 4 stars review, the Evening Standard described the performance as "compelling and chilling", Mind the Blog as "a hard-hitting 90 minutes of theatre that should resonate with all who watch it – brought to life by a highly talented cast” and Theatre Bubble as "a brutal but essential play". This eye-opening drama, a piercing portrait of globalisation and its multifaceted effects comes to Britain following an impressive production at the National Theatre of Strasbourg, where it won the prestigious Grand Prix de la Littérature, The play benefits by a new English translation by Lucy Phelps and the imaginative staging of Romanian director Andy Sava.

 
A quality assurance officer from France, a call centre manager from Senegal, a factory worker from China, and an engineer from Romania. Each leads a life apart, but all work round-the-clock for the same multinational corporation.
 
 
“Stop the rat race. Stop time. Stop the money. Stop the anxiety. Stop everything that has made human beings so bitter.”
