Us, (Post 23/3)
by Kamal Kaan
Based on true events. Live-streamed via Zoom & YouTube during the pandemic. Us, Post 23/3 is a play which tells the story of a family who are caught in a dilemma between working on the frontline and putting their loved ones at risk. The pandemic, an acute infection, and a medically induced coma forces them to re-evaluate the motivations of serving a country who views them as outsiders. The family has to deal with the mental and emotional strain this causes on their personal relationships.

Witness the rise and fall of a new(t) capitalism. Deep in the bowels of an oyster-dredging vessel, an ocean of opportunity arises as a new resource makes contact. War with the Newts was an updated theatrical re-imagining of Karel Čapek’s satirical, political, apocalyptic, sci-fi classic of the same title, transported to a post-Brexit Britain of the possible future. The show featured a fully immersive set by theatre and production designer, Hannah Sibai, a terrifying live mixed score with 8 channel surround sound by composer, performer, sound designer, Dr. Robert Bentall and received Summerhall's Lustrum Award for Outstanding Theatre. War with the Newts previewed at Square Chapel, Halifax and Waterside Arts, Sale and premiered at Summerhall for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2018 before a UK tour including Leeds, Manchester and London.
