An office away-day. A newly recruited sales team for a pharmaceutical company learns the ropes. But does their work really make a difference? What exactly is the drug they are selling? Change is swiftly coming and they are asking all the wrong questions…
Directed by Simon Stokes, science and civilisation collide in Glenn Waldron’s darkly funny play. Fiendishly original, The Here and This and Now interrogates office workplace culture and the cataclysmic consequences of antibiotic resistance.
Glenn Waldron in another life, the feted editor of i-D magazine, has now written two plays for TRP. His previous play, Natives was also at Southwark Playhouse.
Simon Stokes is Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal Plymouth. He was an Artistic Director of the Bush Theatre in the 70’s and 80’s subsequently directing in the West End, across the UK, in Europe and in America. Since he has been at Plymouth the Theatre has won, or been nominated for, over 30 major awards for producing new plays.
