In 1984, the BBC’s dystopic docudrama Threads depicted the nuclear Apocalypse in Sheffield, terrifying millions of viewers. The day before Sheffield Doc/Fest’s 25th Edition begins, artist Richard DeDomenici will remake several minutes of Threads in the very locations that the original show was shot, and he wants your help!
You don’t need to have any acting experience, just the will to be part of our guerilla recreation of the nuclear apocalypse in Sheffield! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with:
• A headshot/passport photo
• Your height (so Richard can match you up with shots and Threads characters)
• Your availability to be in Sheffield over 6 and 7 June 2018
• Contact phone number
Deadline to apply: Friday 25 May, 5pm.
To say thank you, join us at the Premiere of the Redux on Saturday 9 June with a free ticket, plus a few drinks to celebrate, featuring the unique absurdity and general hilarity that comes with DeDomenici’s live shows.

We look forward to facing the apocalypse with you, Sheffield…
