A unique mix of comedy, music, puppets and actors doomed to die.
Worried about your mortgage? Stressed about your report due in
tomorrow? Well it doesn’t matter, because by tomorrow you’ll be dead -
the world is going to end, and there’s nothing we can do to stop it.
Trapped in a theatre with an audience they’ve barely met, five actors
face their impending demise by sharing memories. A half-remembered
childhood incident combines with a fear of heights - and suddenly a
story is born. Taking ideas from the audience and blending them with
puppetry, music - and imminent doom - this is a unique experience for
your final minutes.
Fully improvised and completely unpredictable, the latest show from
The Uncertainty Division will capture your imagination for a few brief
moments before it stops making any difference at all.
An Extremely Memorable Emergency premiered at C Venues at the

Furniture Company, and the group would like to express their thanks
