It's April 1988 and change is coming. The UK is no longer an industrial nation and Jack knows it. He built his component manufacturing firm up from nothing but is there a place for men like him anymore? On the day of his retirement party, what will happen to him, the town, the nation?

Fringe Innovators The Pensive Federation return to The Vaults with their annual new writing event, The Significant Other Festival. Ten new 10 minute plays will be created in just 10 days woven together with the themes of community, relationships and connections exploring the phrase 'significant other'. In their most ambitious project, the unique space of the Vaults opens out onto the factory floor of 'Reseal9, Inc' in an immersive piece like no other.  The audience are visitors to the factory and watch Jack's last day unfold.  What happens to a town when its heart is ripped out? Stories yet to be written but needing to be told.  Ten unique pieces, but one complete play.

Join us for the most ambitious and immersive Pensive Federation production ever.

★★★★★ Views From the Gods “The Pensive Federation have reaffirmed
their position as one of the most exciting new writing companies”

★★★★★ LondonTheatre1 “Worthy of a West End run…”



The Pensive Federation also offers a workshop for Writers and Actors to gain insight into the Pensive process. The 3 hour session will explore different ways of gaining inspiration for beginning new work and getting the most out of the collaborative process between actor and writer. Includes behind the scenes access into how Significant Other Festival is created, curated and crafted.
