SUMMARY

Escape for Dummies is 1 of 20 shows shortlisted for the National Student Drama Festival Edinburgh award!

Dummy F’s routine consists of standing aloft a shop podium, pickpocketing customers and fruitlessly attempting to escape retail prison. Until the day arrives when her dreary existence is toppled by the unboxing of Dummy M in the women’s section, who takes his position seriously and will not be distracted by such foolishness. But swift as a no-nonsense check-out worker, an unspoken bond unique as the barcode attached to their clothes blossoms amidst the hustle and bustle of the shop, and together they hatch a plan to escape the drudgery of the store. Beyond the watchful gaze of bumbling security guards, maniacal watch dogs and one sinister floor manager, this is the story of two mannequins with love in their fiberglass hearts and freedom in their sculpted heads.
