A sci-fi puppet voyage to a future world of wanton waste

A forlorn creature gathers itself together, slowly rising out of the discarded detritus of humanity. Gaining consciousness and determined to live, it tumbles over the landscape, hurtling downriver and out into the ocean to meet a vast, swirling petrochemical ooze. In its mind, a single thought forms: what am I?

The play highlights the catastrophic effects of plastic waste on Earth’s ecosystems – one refuse truck of plastic is dumped into the ocean every minute! – aiming to inspire the future conscious consumers our Earth so desperately needs.

Geoffrey, the eerie and strange creature in this piece, was created by performance artist and sculptor Francois Knoetze, whose work centres around the ‘life cycles of discarded objects and explores junctures between material and social histories’.

Well Worn Theatre Company’s three-year touring play programme is generously funded by the National Lotteries Commission.
