About the Show/Event
Information for All In at The New Diorama Theatre, Inner London (Play). Inspired by going "all in" at poker where the player risks everything, ALL IN takes a wild ride through vastly different, seemingly unconnected worlds. Everyday situations take unexpected turns into the absurd and poignant, boundaries are tested, meals ruined, a dead guest goes to a nightclub and a bearded lady bares her soul. Behind the humour and swirling imagery lies a deeper exploration of how the tyranny of the crowd annihilates the individual. From dictatorship to national anthems, education to self-help manuals, we consider ourselves free from indoctrination, but at the same time choose to participate in other systems of apparently harmless social control.
