Entitled is about hope, privilege and disappointment, and the things we do to try to make our life complete. It's about sometimes being centre-stage and sometimes waiting in the wings.
Devised with three technicians (Greg Akehurst, Chris Whitwood and Lisa Mattocks), three dancers (John Killroy, Joanne Fong and Fiona Wright), and a writer (Sonia Hughes), Entitled takes the form of a theatrical ‘get-in’ and a ‘get-out’: the usually hidden choreography of transforming a theatre from an empty space into a stage for a show, and back again.

Entitled is a co-production between Quarantine and the Royal Exchange Theatre.
