PERFECT SHOW FOR RACHEL
Rachel is a theatre-loving, enigmatic 31 year-old who loves Kylie Minogue, people falling over and heckling from the front row. She is a learning disabled care-home resident, and sister to Flo, Zoo Co’s artistic director. Perfect Show for Rachel was developed with Rachel, to create her ‘perfect show’ on her own terms. It explores who defines artistic taste, and questions who that currently excludes.

LADIES IN THE VAN
Ladies In The Van was created as a direct response to the covid-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown in the UK. During this period there was growing concern for the isolation and disconnect care homes were experiencing. The aim was to create an entertaining show that would momentarily ease these effects and subsequent feelings.
Monotone Man lives in a monochrome world. He spends his time walking the straight and narrow, ticking boxes and avoiding unnecessary contact with strangers. In a world where we so often go out of our way to avoid the people around us, Zoo brought this interactive celebration of connection and colour to an exciting array of outdoor festivals. Produced in association with Lyric Hammersmith and Latitude Festival.
The play is set in an imagined past, where World War 2 results in global nuclear fall out rendering the earth's surface uninhabitable, and where the survivors have been forced to move underground. Ultimately, it is a story about re-discovering human connection, in an environment where, over time, people have become totallyreliant on technology. ⭐ Les Enfants Terribles Award Winner ⭐
