Shelf Life (2000)

Our bodies haven’t changed much in the last forty thousand years. We’re still suited to hunting and gathering through the dappled green light. It’s a long way from the savannah to Safeways. And yet here we find ourselves, apes with trolleys, browsing through the part-baked and the dry-cured, the oven-ready and the virtually-fat-free, wondering why we always get the one with the wonky wheel…

Theatre Alibi wheel you through the supermarket experience with flair and visual panache to the warm, passionate music of Spiro on mandolin, fiddle and guitar.

By turns daft and deep, Shelf Life finds humanity lost amongst the aisles.
