Marathon '33 (J. Havoc)
Guildhall School of Music and Drama (3 yr. Acting / 2 & 3 yr. Stage Management)
Performances take place at the Silk Street Theatre, EC2Y
1933: the height of the Great Depression. A savage contest is about to kick off. This is a Dance Marathon, an endurance test in which contestants must dance perpetually, until one by one they succumb to exhaustion and madness in a spectacle of cruelty, rigged to keep the audience members hooked and spending.
Eighty years on, in an era of reality TV and poverty porn, the Guildhall School presents the British premiere of this extraordinary, visceral show.
