How to fill what's left of your day. How to fill the rest of your days. Sick buckets, bucket rattling, bucket lists, buckets of love.

Wry, emotive, funny and heartfelt, buckets is a play with a unique perspective on a universal dilemma: how do you deal with the fact that time always runs out?

Across thirty-three interconnected scenes – some just a few lines, others mini-plays in their own right – buckets swings through a kaleidoscopic world of sadness and happiness, illness and health, youth and experience, kissing and crying, singing and dying.

Adam Barnard's open-ended text can be performed by any number and composition of actors.

buckets premiered at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in May 2015.

‘I’m just a little conscious of time...’

Press Quotes

'Innovative... Barnard writes with a wounding intelligence'

Guardian

'Clearly influenced by Caryl Churchill… it startles, touches and wryly amuses… a neat balance of absurdity and pathos'

The Times

'An exuberant, likeable and snappy 80 minutes… has a winningly absurdist sense of humour'

Time Out

'Both wise and humorous'
