This year’s summer show A Load of Rubbish is written by local writer and director Darren Maher. This post-apocalyptic comedy is set in a recycling centre called The Garbargerie. The play portrays a bizarre ‘future’ where society has adopted a strict class system. The positions the characters occupy are based on the activities their ancestors undertook in combating climate change. Therefore, the grandchildren of the organic farmer are the aristocrats, the rest of the populace are called ‘Wasters’. There is also an untouchable sub-class who are descended from advertising executives and politicians known as ‘Total Wasters’. The play’s action centres around the home of the aristocrats, who are called ‘The Responsible’. Darren Maher’s original comedy will be staged at Belltable on 15, 16 & 17 August 2019.
