“They're young, they're talented, they're broke... the struggle to make a living doing what you love.”
The inside story behind the making of the TEAM's award-winning Edinburgh and National Theatre hit, Mission Drift. An exclusive view behind the scenes and inside the process and the people. Following the company for over three years - from New York to Vegas to Europe - multiple Emmy award-winning director, Paulette Douglas, chronicles all the passion, disappointment, and drama of this roller coaster ride through the heart of indie theatre.
Ironically played out in the midst of the financial crisis, these passionate young artists are caught in the drama of making a play about American Capitalism while fighting to keep their company afloat. The ultimate primer on “devised” theatre, and a must see for anyone aspiring to a career in the arts, this film is an exclusive first-hand look at what it really takes to make a play; about heart and love and money and art and the struggle to make a living doing what you love.
Mission Drift is a pioneering journey west and east across the USA in search of the character of American capitalism, told through atomic blasts, lizard ballet, and music that fuses Vegas glitz with Western ballads and Southern blues.
