mala voadora & Chris Thorpe present
Your Best Guess
Your Best Guess is about the plans we make for the things that don’t happen. The birthday cake for someone who never turns up. The champions shirts for the team that lost. The wedding clothes that stay in the box. It’s stories and songs about all these and more. Because we all do it, from lovers to governments, from musicians to town planners to the kid who’d rather be anywhere but here. It’s what life is really. Making the best plans you can. Making the best guess at what is going to happen and making the objects that will help you through it.
This is a show about what happens to those objects when the future we expected doesn’t happen. It’s intimate, funny, sad and real.
Spend an evening with two old friends, talking about family, interspersed with stories of dead rock stars, abandoned projects, space missions, and maybe a song.
This performance will be BSL interpreted
