A full throttle visual comedy in the fast lane. Follow a couple as they drive from their home in Eastern Europe through the ghost of the Iron Curtain to the imagined glories of the West. In a Skoda! En route they encounter a multitude of bizarre characters leaving a trail of chaos and skid marks in their wake. As the barriers crumbel following the end of the cold war, will capitalism triumph? Devised by the company, Gone West is a dynamic hybrid of slapstick and physical theatre using minimal dialogue and with an original score by Sheldon King which collides balalaika with techno.
