“A young company with bright ideas and the skills to match them” Total Theatre
Three bouffonesque characters intent on telling the story of The Old Woman let narrative escape them as comic vignettes, metaphysical ponderings and bouts of senseless violence provide constant distraction.
Expressionist silent film meets grotesque slapstick in a world where clocks have no hands and a cucumber can kill a man.
‘a rich and exciting world and wonderfully playful’
