This is a party with a difference.
As turmoil and uncertainty sweep the world, you’ll learn the essential skills you’ll need to survive and savour life when everything you’ve taken for granted has gone – from starting a fire and making balloon animals to mixing the perfect Martini and skinning a rabbit. With the collapse of civilisation close at hand, it’s time to look at all the good things in life and the fear that stops us enjoying them. This wild, immersive show will teach you how to get by when the end finally comes and it’s time to celebrate everything that’s made life worth living…
