Third Angel & Northern Stage present The Department of Distractions  

The Department of Distractions, an organisation so clandestine you won’t have heard of them. Until now.

They say their job is to plant stories in the world “to make life more interesting.” Others would argue that their job is as much to stop us looking in certain directions. But a story they started has got out of hand, they’ve lost control of it and now they’re in danger of being exposed. How far will they go to maintain their anonymity?

Third Angel brings you a conspiracy-theory documentary-exposé detective story for the 21st century that asks: What aren’t you looking at? 

“engaging with the big issues about how we live with a fierce intelligence” The Guardian on Third Angel
