The Future Show is a piece that tells the story of Deborah's future, starting from the end of the performance and going until the end of her life, that is consistently re-written to be both site and time specific. It is a Sisyphean task of a show, examining the mundane, the uncertain, and the fragility of our futures.

‘A testament to Pearson’s astonishing skill as a writer.’ Andrew Haydon, Whatsonstage *****
