Covering the latter half of the 20th Century, the post war, mod or rocker generation of which Martin Figura (poet and occasional mod) is part, Doctor Zeeman’s Catastrophe Machine blurs the edges of personal and collective memory to explore family, relationships and belonging against a familiar social, historical and political backdrop.

Richard Nixon speaks at his own funeral, Jeremy Thorpe turns his downfall into an Edinburgh Fringe show at The Underbelly, Ted Heath is corralled into playing an out of tune piano in a voter’s cold front room, John Major attempts to return to the circus by applying for a ringmaster post and Margaret Thatcher leads her people on to the Raft of Medusa.
