Capitalism is collapsing and the criminal economy is taking over… so let’s go shopping! Step inside the Duckie superstore and witness the decaying arcades of branded Britain. Conspicuous consumption thrives in this promenade performance featuring saucy shopaholics, supermarket sweepers and sweatshop santas.
Purchase your dreams – love, peace and happiness – all boxed up as consumer durables. In an age when we know the Katie Price of everything and the value of nothing, this rollicking good romp asks: Does Christmas mean more than shopping?
Continuing their tradition of alternative Christmas shows for the Barbican, including the Olivier Award-winning C’est Barbican!, the Duckie collective returns with more original festive fare.
Copyright Christmas is aimed at adults, but is suitable for theatregoers aged 11 and older.
