The experimental theatre group People Show were set to premiere their short film People Show 138: The Last Day when Covid forced them to call it off. Now, from October 19 to 23, they are making it available on YouTube. It tells the story of an HR manager in a sock factory who is forced to make his staff redundant as the firm closes. As he does so, he faces a terrible moral dilemma.
The film stars Tyrone Higgins, George Khan and thirty young performers from the University of Roehampton’s Drama, Theatre and Performance department. It has won awards at short film festivals in Los Angeles and La Jolla, California, and is well worth a look. Here’s the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WvsBgQh04U&feature=youtu.be
