Before the railways, there was no such thing as ‘the’ time. Villages and towns had their own local times. Time was decided by the sun, and all people had to do was look at it.

200 years later, Miranda can’t stop thinking about time.

What time it is, how long she’s got, how long she’s been doing something, how long she should have been doing it, what time she needs to wake up, how long it will take to get there, how long she’ll have to sleep, is that long enough, and how long is left?

Does it have to be this way? It hasn’t always been this way. It isn’t this way for everyone. What if she decided to stop living like this? Would life be better?

Would it be possible to live without time? And what is time anyway?

Featuring musings on climate change, quantum physics, the destruction of humanity and dinosaurs, this solo show sees Miranda leave the city, take to the canals, travel to a remote Scottish island and form questionable relationships with moorhens in her quest to escape time.

An Attempt to Lose Time is a playful, surreal and surprising meditation on time blending the personal and the collective, a questioning of the status quo and an invitation to see time differently.

Developed with support from Arts Council England, Camden People's Theatre, Spot On Lancashire, The Dukes and Theatre by the Lake.

ACCESSIBILITY: Thanks to a collaboration with Digital 4, all performances will be captioned using a portable LED screen. All performances will have creatively integrated audio descriptions. No extra tech is required from the audience. An audio introduction is available on the company website.

'I enjoyed all of it. It got me thinking about my place in the world, and introduced new ideas about the nature of time.' Audience Member
