A story of love, loss and compilation tapes

...mesmerising theatre...
* * * * * Time Out

...ferociously powerful...

Static tells the story of a young woman who has lost her husband. Discovering a compilation tape that he made but never gave her, she becomes convinced it contains a secret message. What could the tape mean – and is he trying to communicate with her from beyond the grave?

Static fuses music, dialogue, sign language and audio description to explore our complex response to love and loss. It is steeped in a love of music from Sonic Youth to The Smiths, The Ramones to The Rakes and from Girls Aloud to the Goodies (we've all got to have our guilty pleasures).

Static was a co-production between Suspect Culture and Graeae Theatre Company touring the UK for 11 weeks in 2008.
