GODS AND DOGS BY THE RUDE MECHANICAL THEATRE

It’s 2084 and Tina enters ‘Marriage Maker’! The idea of the game is if you win you get to marry the super-glamorous footballer, Harry Best, on the Saturday, have a weekend of love, then divorce him on the Monday. Unfortunately, Tina falls in love. How will she cope?

This comic dystopian allegory is set in 2084 on the fictitious island of Abatina based loosely on Monaco in a world where people are either glamorous celebrities or slobbering followers of them gripped to their telephones – except, that is, the Nevnops, as Big Al, the all-seeing all hearing President, calls them, that is, ‘Not Very Nice People’, who choose to pursue their own thoughts on the matter.

The story follows Tina who enters ‘Marriage Maker’! The idea of the game is if you win you get to marry the super-glamorous footballer, Harry Best, on the Saturday, have a weekend of love, then divorce him on the Monday. Unfortunately, Tina makes the mistake of falling in love when she wins and doesn’t want to divorce. Doreen, her best friend, has her own opinion, but then she might be a Nevnop and the Mind Police might get to her first and send her to the wolves on the ‘Other Side’.
