In Bed With My Brother: PRIME_TIME

The Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award

PRIME_TIME

Taking aim at Amazon’s founder and massive phallic rocket owner, Jeff Bezos; PRIME_TIME is a riotous reassessment of the web giant and the power he holds over our planet and beyond.

One click. Another weapon ordered. An estimated delivery slot pings up on a screen. It's time to take Jeff down but time is running out. PRIME_TIME prods at the human and ecological cost of giving so much power to one man. What would a post-Bezos future look like if they could have things their way?

IN BED WITH MY BROTHER make high energy, anarchic work in which anything can and does happen. PRIME_TIME is inspired by cyberfeminists and ancient Amazonian warriors who went to battle with men. The show is soundtracked by the music of SOPHIE.

Running time: approx 1 hour, 10 mins 

Age guidance: 16+ (contains strong language, descriptions of violence and full frontal nudity)

Reviews

‘They smartly twist conventions, diving into tropes while burning them at the edges. There’s a terrifying, electric sense that anything could happen next.‘
The Guardian on Tricky Second Album
‘It’s an intentionally anarchic hour… but it’s a mistake to think this part-improvised mayhem is thoughtless.‘
The Stage on Tricky Second Album

Relaxed performance

The performance on Wed 3 Nov, 7.45pm will be Relaxed. A Relaxed performance is ideal for those who would benefit from a more informal approach to noise and movement in the auditorium, or would feel more at ease knowing they could enter and exit freely. 

For this production:

  • The house will be opened early to allow you more time to find your seats.
  • A member of the Front of House team will lead a pre-show welcome talk.
  • The Front of House team are briefed on providing an more informal service and relaxing the standards in regard to audience behaviour during the performance.
  • Latecomer and re-admittance points will be relaxed to allow people to leave and re-enter the auditorium more freely. 
  • The house lights will remain slightly raised during the performance to ensure your safety if you need to move about.
  • Auditorium doors will be kept open during the performance to assist you in entering and exiting the theatre during the performance.
  • Some seats are kept off-sale so you can move around during the performance more freely (within reason and managed by the Front of House team).
  • The performers are briefed about Relaxed performances, and know that you may need to move around and make noise.
  • A quiet chill out space is provided with comfortable seating.

This performance has not been sensory adapted and it will contain loud noise throughout. Please get in touch with us if you would like to discuss further before making a booking.  Contact the Theatre team at [email protected].
