Department Story is a site-specific production set in empty retail units in Belfast's City Centre which smashes together flash theatre and physical fiction in a killer spree through a department of stories, where everything returned has a tale to tell - a talking toaster, a dress with a past, accessories after the fact. Browse through classic brands like Gogol or take a punt on our new collection of global writers. Take stock, grab your shopping list and be sure to ask the staff (?) for help. But of course, this is no ordinary Department Store. Customers have choice but alongside choice comes great responsibility and before long there are decisions to be made. When the in-store shoppers end up with more than they bargained for, their fate lies with those online - but can they deliver?
