The Bunker’s Summer 2018 season celebrates exciting work from both emerging and established companies. A highlight of this season is Breaking Out – a new initiative introduced by Artistic Director Joshua McTaggart – which champions the most ambitious and innovative theatre companies who are embarking on their theatrical journey.
Nine Foot Nine – Cara and Nate are a hard-working young couple looking to start a family. Together they’re bumbling through the daunting world of pregnancy tests, maternity clothes and flat pack cot building. That is, until suddenly a vast proportion of all the women in the world start to grow – centimetre by centimetre, foot by foot, with science powerless to stop them. The awareness that women are now physically more powerful than men sends shockwaves through society, fracturing age-old assumptions and prejudices. How do political regimes react? What will happen to industry, media, families, sex? And, more importantly, what comes next? Brought to life by Sleepless Theatre Company, this innovative new play examines the changing labels of ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ and a world where the gender balance is forever altered.
