On the 26th and 28th of June, in Frederiks on Hope Street, Liverpool poet and writer Alex Ferguson’s brand new comic play with poems will preview before it’s Edinburgh run. In the Millennial Dome is a comic look at 20-somethings’ constant battle with indecision and getting the best out of life.
“It’s good to be busy.”
In a bar somewhere in a trendy part of London that you’ve probably never heard of, Tim and George, two classic 20-something Millennials, consider their futures. Tim, a poet who seems to have his life on track, helps George play through hypothetical possibility of life in the Millennial Dome. It promises to provide comedy and intrigue, but also highlights the issues facing an internet generation given a lot of choice without direction.
“You’re a Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,
But it’s 2017, so it’s more like…
Corporate lobbyist, small business owner,
Social media fiend, fitness guru guy”
A touching comedy about two guys, just trying to make sense of it all. With poems.
