The world’s largest museum of obsolete technology is threatened with closure unless Hector - its cantankerous, turnkey-operated clockwork curator - can match the popularity of the cutting-edge Uptodateum across the road. Only George - the mild mannered in-house caretaker with the mysterious past - steps up to help him. Does nobody care about history? Will anyone ever get to ride the NHScalator? How will postboxes, leeches and face-to-face conversation be remembered if the Obsoleteum closes its doors forever? Meanwhile, the Uptodateum has its own problems to deal with, as harried curator Biz and her guileless half-hologram, half-robot assistant Phil struggle to keep their enormous glass-and-touchscreen tower constantly up to date. If only they could work out what to do with their ever- increasing mountain of outdated exhibits...?

So funny

I’m so sad it’s over, but it totally made me laugh out loud at work and will get recommendations whenever someone asks.

Gut-Bustingly Funny

Given the group of creatives behind this show, I shouldn't have been surprised at how excellent and hilarious it is. Some jokes will make you laugh, others will make you groan (purposefully so)-- and the live audience adds a great energy. Looking forward to much more in... the future (sorry, Hector!)
