‘What a blast. The company fulfil all their promise in this gorgeous, gaudy musical.’The Guardian

Mission Drift is a pioneering journey across the USA in pursuit of the soul of American capitalism, told through atomic blasts, lizard ballet, and original music that fuses Vegas glitz with Southern blues. Mythic and contemporary stories collide in this new work by award-winning New York ensemble The TEAM.

​Winner of the 2011 Scotsman Fringe First and the Herald Angel Awards.
