Prepare yourself for a tempest in a tea cup … or rather, a coffee cup

The Society portrays a collective of sworn coffee drinkers, utterly devoted to the rituals and elitism of the dark bean. When their harmony is broken by the discovery of (gasp!) a used tea bag hidden in their guarded sanctuary, loyalties are severely tested.

Created by Norway's celebrated and highly original Jo Strømgren Kompani, this true theatre hybrid sees three multi-skilled actors indulge in a nonsensical language, masterful physical comedy, impromptu dance, intense French ballads and even lip-synching. Like any great satire, no –ism is safe, as elitism, patriotism, individualism and racism all become fodder for obliteration.

A small play with big ideas that leaves you surprised, amused and even a little shell-shocked.

… comedic touches worthy of Peter Sellers. THE NEW YORK TIMES  MORE >

The Society is Strømgren's examination of extreme ethnocentrism, brilliantly conveyed by utilizing every thinkable Asian and European stereotype. DANCINGPERFECTLYFREE.COM  MORE >
