A journey through Time, Space, Beer and Community, brewed in Cornwall.
A journey through Time, Space, Beer and Community, brewed in Cornwall. If you could time travel to the pub of the future what would you like to see? Robot bar staff, instant nostalgia or a new social Inn-vention?
This “thought-provoking hour of playful, beautifully conceived theatre” by Small Acts debates and celebrates the power and potential of community whilst gathering a deeper understanding of what the pub of the future will look like.
Conjuring the territories, atmospheres and eccentricities of a traditional local the show incorporates original writing, film, music, games and of course a time machine to transport audiences to the pub of the future!
Future Pub draws on interviews with brewers, pub-goers and campaigners to explore the enduring role of pubs in our lives at a time when the future of so many hangs in the balance. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may win a prize and you’ll never take pubs for granted again!
