####Who are they?
GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN is Hester Chillingworth, Lucy McCormick and Jennifer Pick, a London-based performance company, formed in 2008.
Together they play with failure, attempt, endurance, utterance, trashiness, the pathetic, triumph, mess. Based in London, they make theatre pieces and live art together… so far.
Make: broken genre performance
Hold: a core belief in performance as dialogue
Assert: that text does not always say what it says that it says it is saying
Want: to transport you.
####What People Have Said About Them

External is a must-see - Exeunt
Powerfully and unashamedly clever… I urge anyone with an interest in theatre to go and see this little gem. - Whatsonstage
An ebulliently ramshackle celebration - Time Out
Sharp, short, hilarious… External is undeniably accessible… a show you can read into endlessly and has you thinking about it well beyond the final applause. - Spoonfed
Be warned, GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN is Marmite, and I hate Marmite. - A Younger Theatre

External hurls a conversation about authenticity and originality right out into the open and forces it to fight for its life, giggling, gnashing and doing its own head in.
Let’s get the party started.
