ORL associate company, GINGER & BLONDE THEATRE, PRESENT
IS THAT ALL THERE IS?
By ROSIE SHARP & ANNA MCKELVIE
“There are no sides anymore. Just survival.”
After the dreaded Apnea virus wiped out nearly half the Earth’s population, drastic measures had to be
taken. Now under the dictatorship of Mildred Damion, Britain faces new, gender-idealistic ruling. We are
given a window into the lives of four unexpected rebels, kept in a holding facility before facing trial for their
Ivan, mature for his age and strong-minded, battles his way through an unjust reality, in search of his
stolen brother. Charismatic and open though Ray may be, her fixation with sexual pleasure is the only
thing that brings her solace. Dean, conscious but subdued, believes he has no right to be there, but is
buckling under the pressure of the law in Britain 2089. In this repressive system, Ali is itching for friends
and freedom, whilst trying to maintain her darkest secret.
As their narratives intertwine, themes emerge of love, friendship and human resilience in, somewhat
familiar, dark times.
Writers and performers Rosie Sharp & Anna McKelvie recently founded Ginger & Blonde Theatre.
Following a sold out run at The Bread & Roses, they are delighted their first professional piece “IS THAT
ALL THERE IS?” will be showing at The Old Red Lion, March 2020.
