Show Info

By Tim Marriott
Directed by Margarett Perry

With Tim Marriott and Alex Sunderhaus

An annual performance review that goes horribly wrong. 

Department head Nicky wants to get on with her job; her boss has other ideas. 

This dark comedy is a power play of manipulation, subtext, and subterfuge, exploring the explosive consequences that can arise out of a seemingly innocent conversation.

Smokescreen Productions was set up by producer, writer, director and performer Tim Marriott with a mission to create contemporary issue based theatre, developing new work into professional performance in association with national and international charities. Smokescreen seeks to create powerfully engaging drama, provoking conversations and encouraging audiences to consider issues from a different perspective, to change attitudes and create a lasting effect. We undertake meticulous research, working alongside charities and including residencies and site visits. We seek to raise awareness and illuminate issues, which some may find challenging or difficult, framed in a theatrical setting that aims to be richly entertaining.

★★★★★ "A maze of twists and turns with humorous, dramatic punch" – Edinburgh Guide

★★★★★ "Appraisal is a tightly written and compellingly performed evisceration of workplace dynamics" – InReview

★★★★★ "A great piece of theatre. Alternately funny and sad. Ironic satire beautifully performed." – The Clothesline
