Relish a comedy that centers around political correctness and a newly growing fear that has developed: that of giving offence to others. Witness a comedy that leaves you roaring in laughter while still delving into life and perceptions in modern Britain, a repercussions of news and media.
Why Watch Keith?
Oscar Pearce and Patrick Marmion collaborate again to bring “Keith?”. Creators of the acclaimed play Great Apes, the duo promises to set the stage on fire once more. Patrick Marmion attempts to illustrate the craziness of life in modern Britain. Amidst growing worries over the issues of fake news, media manipulation and turbulent governments, Marmion finds comedy and humor in the dishonesty and lies that we spew at each other. The unusual characters add to the chaos of the story and serve us a reminder that things aren’t as bad as they seem to be portrayed. The varied cast adds a new dimension to the play and helps paint a more convincing, albeit diverse picture of the United Kingdom.
A gun-runner from South Africa is currently a Buddhist Monk. A millionaire running a startup has an ex-wife who is a fanatical feminist. Their daughter, doing aid work in Syria, meets a young British Muslim man. The two other characters are an ethical Serbian hitman who is tormented by his past and an eccentric Brazilian cleaner. Watch how their destinies are intertwined.
Everyone in the play is walking on eggshells, afraid of offending someone else. People are suspicious of each other, apprehensive of some crime that might occur around them. But is this the reality of life or has media and news warped our image of humanity?
