Sam wants to tell you about five encounters he had on a site called Craigslist.
Sam is anxious about the way he gets to know people. About the way he self-sabotages his attempts to communicate and reach out to those around him.
Sam wants this to be a chance for you to get to know him.
“Would someone like to join me up onstage?”
Desperately hilarious and achingly bleak, 5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist is an intricate and tender question mark around our attempts to encounter each other in a technologized world.
Winner of Total Theatre Award for an Emerging Company/Artist 2017.
“Sam [Ward] is a gripping storyteller willing to (literally) strip bare his sexual experiences and complicated emotions… He gives a fascinating and thought provoking insight into a world many know nothing about… Go outside your comfort zone and give this interactive performance a try!” – Culturebean
“5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist is a form of group therapy… This might potentially be an uncomfortable experience for some, but it is theatre, and good theatre at that.” – The Greater Manchester Reviewer
” Watching this pale, blond young man in his simple attire made me think of the David Bowie character in The Man Who Fell to Earth who walked quietly amongst us as an Alien, absorbing and reflecting on what makes us human.” – Live Art Alive
“Entertaining and thoughtfully constructed… A moving and bittersweet experience.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
★★★★★ “The kind of theatre that is visionary, purposive and unpretentious.” – Three Weeks
