Welcome to the factory a place of noise, smoke and industry, where you keep your head down and get your work done. There is no time for opinions or questions, there is only the machine, and we are all just a cog in its infinite workings. That is until one day the machine breaks, the factory is a place of silence for the first time. As the smoke clears, the workers are suddenly confronted with one another, and are forced to engage in human interaction for the first time in years. As the factory employees scrabble around bereft of the singular purpose of their work questions ring out. Why did the machine stop? Is it broken? How do we fix it? And most importantly do we want to?

Greenhouse is a devised piece created by the members of the Actors Lab at Stage Two. The creative process has been performer led, through a combination of improvisation, found texts, and physical work. The company have created a world and populated it with characters in order to explore themes such as the relationship between humanity and technology, the clash between nature and industry, and to ask what happens when the machine stops and we are left with nothing but each other.
