No Particular Order

By Joel Tan

Paperback £10.99£8.79

A despot has come to power. The population is listless, submissive and scared.

But beneath every violation of civil autonomy, there are real human beings; behind every act of resistance, there is an individual willing to risk everything. And these people aren't heroic or remarkable – they're just like us.

Through the lives of bureaucrats, soldiers, ornithologists and tour guides, No Particular Order charts the fate of a single society, asking at every step of the way: is it empathy, or power, that endures?

Joel Tan's startling and apocalyptic play No Particular Order was shortlisted for the Theatre503 International Playwriting Award, and opened at Theatre503, London, in May 2022, directed by Josh Roche.

Press Quotes

'Joel Tan is a fiery new talent... highlights just how boringly safe and naturalistic most theatre remains'

Evening Standard

'A mosaic portrait of a society in collapse, with a spine of bitterly dark comedy'
