Cambridge Footlights

Publicity package for production of new sketch show Obsolete at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019. Poster tests with custom logos included below.

Cambridge Footlights Comrie and Dee present the hyperkinetic, garish and gothic Obsolete: a sinister tech company presentation, combining the Silicon Valley with the uncanny valley. The product? A grotesque machine where one can upload their consciousness to the internet and become anything, abandoning their body. It's Robin Williams meets the Matrix. It's Bo Burnham meets Black Mirror. It's Morecambe and Wise meets Blade Runner. Combining the madcap and the macabre, in the wake of Cambridge Analytica, Mark Zuckerberg's testimony and the rise of virtual reality. When the body becomes obsolete, where do we stop?

Actors/Writers: Comrie Saville-Ferguson & Dee Allum-Gruselle

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,         Enwrought with golden and silver light,        The blue and the dim and the dark cloth        Of night and light and the half-light,        I would spread the cloths under your feet:        But I, being poor, have only my dreams;        I have spread my dreams under your feet;        Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.        Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven by W.B. Yeats, 1899
