Instagramming the Apocalypse

Rural Arts Thirsk
Thursday 13th February

In this funny and entertaining performance, multi-award winning writer, performer and broadcaster Byron Vincent turns his sharp wit and curious mind to the modern malaise.

Byron Vincent has an anxiety disorder, but with dying icons, impending climate catastrophe and that bloke from Home Alone 2 in charge of world’s largest nuclear arsenal, isn’t blind panic the only sane response?

It’s a glib, postmodern world in which cynicism is cool, modern life is rubbish and sincerity is for suckers; but as concepts like truth, peace and hope become risible anachronisms, maybe it’s time to re-evaluate our perspective. In a post-satire age, what’s so funny about peace, love and understanding?

“One of the best things I have ever seen” - Bang Said The Gun.

Age guidance: 16+
