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 55 mins 

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