Summary

That I’d have seen it –

And I’d think –

That is f**king disgusting.

The world is f**king horrible.

I pledge to spend the rest of my life trying to change it.

Nothing is much more than a series of monologues. It is about – among other things – customer service, crap television, cupcakes, shitting, sex, buses and stalking. From fury to boredom, Lulu Raczka (winner of the Sunday Times Young Playwriting Award) attempts to capture the apathy rampant in today’s youth. In a sparse production by Barrel Organ Theatre, the monologues are performed in an improvised cut, utilising the mechanisms of theatre to interrogate the structures in which we live.

Nothing opened with a short run in Leamington Spa, before heading to the National Student Drama Festival in April 2014 and winning four awards, including the Buzz Goodbody Student Director Award and the Award for Creative Risk.
