The rest of our lives is a playlist of scenes that the performance juggle, using an instrument which works a roulette The performance works with the vulnerabilities of the performers, modelled through autofiction, and explores themes such as toxic relations and the way young millennials are seen by the rest of society. It’s like going home after a long day and listening to your favorite album, only it’s on shuffle.
