Age recommendation 13+ Mild language, references to racism and slavery. Performed by CYT Company Director: Caroline Dean Assistant Director & Sound Editor: Sam Harrison Ouija Board Videography: Alex Evans & Ruth Evans of Evokes Productions This is a play about the British Isles, its past and its present. Set in a senior common room, in a prominent university, a group of 1st year undergraduates are troubled, not by the weight of their workload, but by a ‘noisy’ ghost. So they do what any group of self-respecting and intelligent university students would do in such a situation – they get out the Ouija Board to confront their spiritual irritant and lay them to rest – only to be confronted by the full weight of Britain’s colonial past – in all its gory glory. However, if you think you know about British history, Empire, slavery, economics, racism and humanity, then this play might get you to think again. As the planch on the Ouija Board skates from letter to letter at an ever-increasing breakneck speed, the students are catapulted through space and time, witnessing the injustices, incongruities and inhumanity of the past. This is a smorgasbord of genres and styles. Fusing naturalism, with spoken-word, absurdism, poetry and direct address – this is event-theatre that whips along with the grace, pace and hypnotic magnetism of a hurricane.
