Prolific writer Ali Pritchard, directed by Ben Dickerson, has crafted a unique and authentic piece of verbatim theatre that goes to the root of the eponymous question, How Did We Get To This Point?, which will be performed at Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle from Tuesday 6th until Saturday 10th December.

How Did We Get To This Point? examines the intimate and perspective-altering experiences of Ali Pritchard’s personal story as a destitute and homeless young man. The piece seeks to question and pass comment on how we live within our own selfish, technological bubbles instead of engaging with the contentious arguments that often fall away from popular discourse.

Presenting a show which is both a reflective and progressive dissection of Britain, Pritchard is unashamedly candid and articulate in his scrutiny of British society; a voice of experience in an arena that is often rendered null through romantic visions of poverty and struggle, it’s a piece of sincere, ethical and philosophical theatre.
