Time: 7.30pm

Ticket Price: £10(regular)/£8(concessions)


Created and performed by Brian Lobel

Brian Lobel played a brutal game of friendship maintenance in which he gave strangers in cafe’s one minute to decide which of his 1342 Facebook friends to keep or delete. The deleting was real, the pace was maniacal, the results were final.


50 hours of performance, 800 emails from angry, amused and intrigued friends and over 2500 comments from people watching via live stream later, Purge (the stage show) examines the process of and fallout from Purge and explores how we emotionally and socially interact with digital media.
