There are red suits and smeared make up, locked smiles and glum faces.
On a bare stage under bright light a troupe of hapless clowns do their unlevel best to get along and pass the time. Carefully unbalanced between funny and not funny Out Of Order is the ruins of a show in the ruins of a world. Violence and posturing, high jinx and clown on clown comical capers give way to bickering, exhaustion, hunger, melancholy and silence. The clock ticks. The music swells to repeated climax.
