A MR AND MRS CLARK PRODUCTION
EDINBURGH FESTIVAL PREVIEW
(F.E.A.R.) is a one-man show about constructed fear. It asks directly if the world want us to feel safe. (F.E.A.R.) is a brave, revealing and at times hilarious one-man tour of early child hood memories to midlife identity crisis delivered directly to the audience in a revealing and close up manner.
In this life story, that encapsulates early childhood memories and public information films, a clear and ever more fevered narrative unearths the fears of a middle aged man plagued with the news of Islamic State attacks, the revelations of Edward Snowden, the rise of UKIP and of a growing concern of physical decay.
Described as 'a powerful blast of theatre', (F.E.A.R.) allows the audience to witness the vulnerability of a solo male performer in full confessional mode. Expect a rollercoaster of dark humour and powerful story telling that becomes ever more fevered and uneasy when discussing the uncertainties of Brexit, state security and dysfunctional ageing.
Mr and Mrs Clark follow up their Amnesty International award nominated show Smash It Up with another powerful performance questioning the way we live. (F.E.A.R.) is once again a timely piece of theatre that aims to analyse and discuss the constant fear we live with from day to day and its political ramifications.
