‘It’s very important that you stay healthy.
That the environment you work in is safe.
That you feel comfortable, and secure.
That you feel balanced, safe, and in control.’
Are your employers concerned about your welfare? Do they have a duty of care? Emma thinks so, but when she begins a relationship with colleague Darren her Manager suggests she might be in breach of contract. A series of bizarre meetings follow, during which the consequences of Emma’s actions take on a disturbing quality… A dark comedy about faceless corporations, nameless management and the boundaries between work and play.
Deafinitely Theatre is the UK’s only professional deaf-led theatre company, creating bilingual productions of classic and contemporary plays for deaf and hearing audiences that combine the visual storytelling of British Sign Language with the immediacy of spoken English. Deafinitely Theatre’s CONTRACTIONS, the first professional revival of the play in London since its debut at the Royal Court Theatre, marks the company’s 15th anniversary, following productions at the Gate, Soho and Globe theatres. Staged in collaboration with New Diorama Theatre on a disused trading floor, it will be Deafinitely Theatre’s first site-specific show.
‘A smart, inventive revival… This bilingual staging, so fluidly handled, makes you appreciate the richness of the text anew’
– The Stage on Deafinitely Theatre’s Grounded
‘Deafinitely, I’d say, theatre for everyone’
