"Bold, original, confident...Futurology is a present-day delight"
**** The Guardian
"...no serious fan of 21st-century theatre should miss it"
**** The Scotsman
The future's coming towards us at a hundred miles an hour. Do you ever feel like a rabbit caught in the headlights? The oil's running out, the climate is changing, China's on the rise. Meanwhile we're left wondering how to act now. Is there something we should be doing? Is it ok to be doing nothing?
Thankfully, the powers that be have called a conference to discuss all this and make the big decisions for us. Futurology is the story of that conference. Futurology explores the big questions in a darkly comic show packed full of song, dance, ventriloquism and Suspect Culture's trademark theatrical style.
