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.

Praise For…

‘Delicate, ever-changing… For a show that is nominally about the future, the piece says as much – perhaps more – about the present moment.’ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian ****

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

‘Deborah Pearson’s The Future Show is one of my favorite pieces so far this year—deceptively simple, funny, artful, tender’ Katherine Catmull, Fusebox

‘A tender, meditative attempt to find a foothold on life’s uncertainties.’ Matt Trueman

‘The Future Show is remarkable. Conceptually brilliant and so moving.’ Dan Rebellato
