Extremely Loud and Incredibly Gross by Adam Goodall

From The War Artist

The performance is set around the supposed recording of a podcast where commentator Adam Goodall hopes to justify his obsession with the horror flick, Final Destination 3. He has invited to the recording two guest actors who play a range of characters (commentators and themselves). Oliver Devlin plays the podcast sound recordist and SFX man. But Devlin is the biggest fly in Goodall's ointment as he begins to ask serious questions about Goodall's style and his intention. The recording goes belly up and the stage show ends up taking us to a place that begins to ask serious questions about the nature - and perhaps social function - of trivial obsessions.
