Blamed for their audacious risk-taking, young people face a bleak future—enter the Risk Management Centre; a dowdy grey building on the corner of town, where a group of people deemed risk-takers find themselves sent to complete their Risk Management Course.


Co-created by Liv Ello and Zoo Co‘s Young Company.

In this dystopian dark comedy, the Zoo Co Young Company stages a rebellion against a world that stifles adventure. Created through a dynamic collaboration between young voices and renowned punk playwright Liv Ello, this visually captivating, highly ensemble production challenges societal norms, as the most recent victims of the Risk Management Centre team up to rewrite the rules.

Risky Business is proudly presented by Zoo Co as part of London Borough of Culture, in partnership with Croydon Music and Arts.

Access information:
