Are you With Us? Is an improvised performance where Gob Squad ask each other all the questions they are afraid to ask in private, in public. It’s part group therapy, part performance nightmare.

By turns brutally funny and painfully honest, it’s a high stakes game on the verge of a breakdown. Stuck in an endless photo-shoot-cum-therapy-session, the performers change their look from flight attendants to terrorists and more, searching for a group identity where everyone has found their place.

Are you With Us? is a performance for anyone who has buried what they really want to say to their colleagues, family or team-mates. Anything can go wrong. Everything is at stake. So, are you with us?

Gob Squad Arts Collective has been making performance and theatre together for almost 20 years. 20 years of working collectively, 20 years of making, discussing, arguing, touring, performing. They know each other inside out. Their private and professional lives are totally inseparable. They have shared highs and lows, fame and failure, children, love, homes and an office.

The tour is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
