The Forest & the Field is a gently seductive, immersive piece of non-fiction storytelling, which asks its audience to look at themselves, and to consider what we’re all doing when we meet in a theatre space.

Using live demonstrations and video clips, and drawing on a wealth of examples from Shakespeare to O.J. Simpson via John Berger and Bruce Lee, The Forest & the Field creates a space for reflecting on theatre, from inside the moment of its happening.

Relaxed and informal, yet passionate and provocative, The Forest & the Field sees Chris Goode & Company ask some searching questions about how theatre might change to meet the social and cultural challenges of tomorrow — and how we might change with it.

The Turing archive, a treasure chest of histories, is being downsized; money is tight and space is precious.  But what should be saved? And is it really worth saving anything anyway? Two colleagues risk discarding a few innocent looking documents and erasing a whole past.  A mischievous piece about forgetting, activism and apathy.

Somewhere out there in the future a woman called Emma and a sentient vacuum cleaner called Hooverdroid have fallen in love. This future-queer love affair brings joy, heartache, hard-drive overload and internment… Against all the odds a biobot-hoover-baby is born. 
It's an absolute scandal.
