Hand in Glove (2015)
Presented in a double-bill with Doug & Lillian (2015)
Hand In Glove was inspired by a short lived "reality" endurance show called Touch The Truck based on competitions in the US which apparently still run in various parts of the world. It also relates to Big Brother and all of the other televised endurance competitions which have spawned in the twelve years since it was first produced.
When we join the last three participants they have been standing with one hand on a car – with short breaks – for 74 hours and the competition is getting fierce. With one hand remaining on the car they resort to all sorts of mind games and tricks to try to win, each for their own reasons and goals. But how much truth are they telling each other and who exactly can we believe. When fame and fortune beckon are there any limits to what you would say and do to win?
