ARE YOU STILL WATCHING
**WINNER OF THE JUDGE'S AWARD AT THE NATIONAL STUDENT DRAMA FESTIVAL 2019*
“A heady mix of innovative stylings, humorous interventions, musical interludes and moments of pathos; it deftly uses the warm glow of the small screen to illuminate thoughts on identity, celebrity, finding yourself and feeling safe."

"We look up at the same stars and see such different things... for a little while, you're more than just you."
Jon Snow, Game of Thrones
ARE YOU STILL WATCHING is a show about telly. About old classics and new favourites, catchphrases, theme tunes, and iconic moments. The continuity is all over the place, some of it is a repeat but the HD is really very good. ARE YOU STILL WATCHING is about identity and the static hiss between the thrill of escape and the comfort of familiarity. It's channel hop, a live-action Gogglebox, a glorious technicolour dreamshow that shoves high and low culture into a room together and invites us all to watch. Our eyes are square and we don’t care.
