A near future. A wasteland. In the time between Before and After, a group of contestants reside in a place known only as The Centre. When the promise of a better future beckons beyond the walls, they must prepare for the opportunity of a lifetime. But are they really singing for their shot? Or are they singing for their survival?
Set in a dystopian reality where people with disabilities are relocated to work centres while they await transfer into an imagined new community.
Singing for Survival was a provocative satire devised and performed by an ensemble of actors from Run of the Mill in collaboration with Pathways Day Service, Maynooth, Co. Kildare.
