Part of 'Fitter Happier More Productive': a selection of cutting-edge artists respond to the cult of self-betterment, and explore how it feels to be imperfect in its shadow.
‘Am I happy? I can’t say immediately, with assurance that I am. And when you’re not sure about something, when you hesitate, even if afterwards you decide, that yes, I am fine – that hesitation is telling – it proved that you weren’t certain, so therefore it must lead to the conclusion that there is something internal, unconscious, inside of you, trying to tell you that actually no – you are not happy. That must mean I am not happy.’

Pen and Lucy are on the dole. Lucy is forced to work for her local supermarket. She would really like a holiday. Pen would really like to get revenge on capitalism. Trevor really wants to win the Best Store Award. What happens next is a hashed hostage hold-up, with chaos, crutches, Clubcards and a reluctant YouTube song. Will they all achieve their dreams?
DEPRESCOS is a frolic through the microcosm world of the supermarket. Dark humour highlights the inequalities of low/no paid work. In relation to poverty, exploitation and boredom; DEPRESCOS offers hostages and holidays.
Performed in the Pinter Studio, 2014
