AWARD-WINNING THEATRE COMPANY RETURN WITH A PROVOCATIVE TALE OF OUTSIDERS
A mother and her adult daughter are living in reduced circumstances, when a mysterious stranger appears on their doorstep, unsettling their already chaotic lives.
This is a brutal and alarming tale of lives colliding on the edge of a precipice... a clash of cultures, shoplifting, lottery tickets and revolutionary acts!
A poetic fusion of comedy, surrealism and tragedy, award-winning Manchester theatre company Coal return to The Studio to create an engaging and enthralling production in collaboration with John Wright (co-founder Told By An Idiot).
‘Walks a fine line between comedy and a far darker place.’ The Scotsman (THE FRAGILITY OF X)
'Surrealism, physical comedy and social comment all slide into view, brilliantly written comedy with a dark and twisted heart'. Metro (NOT WITH THAT HAND)
