Exploring an alt-right alternative present using spoken English and BSL, The Process stars Catherine Bailey, Ralph Bogard, George Eggay, William Grint, Erin Hutching, and Jean St Clair.The Process is set in an alt-right alternative present nightmare. Deaf businesswoman Jo is the inventor of The Process app, designed to define an individual's value to society as 'Cost Positive' or 'Cost Negative' - but as she's caught in the malevolent bureaucracy she's helped to create, the assumption that 'it'll never happen to me' suddenly does not feel so secure. The Process is told in BSL and spoken English. Every show will be performed in a relaxed environment, with relaxed performances on 21 and 28 January 2020, captioned performances available on selected dates through The Difference Engine, and an audio-described performance on 30 January.Catherine Bailey is a co-artistic director for BAZ Productions.
