Synopsis


“Acting is an emergency, and in an emergency you do whatever works.


What you do in a fire drill may bear no resemblance to what you do in an actual fire, but your chances of survival are greatly improved by a past enactment of the drills”. (Deb Margolin)


Award-winning multimedia theatre-makers Breach have previously explored re-enacting the past - from a 1985 clash between riot police and New Age travelers in The Beanfield, to a 1960's experiment into teaching dolphins English in Tank.


In The Drill, the company investigates rehearsing for the future - through safety drills and emergency response training.


Mashing up documentary film, devised theatre and audience interaction, The Drill takes a critical look at emergency preparedness scenarios to consider today's anxieties around security and terrorism.
