WRESTLING THE WALRUS is a new play about companionship, connections and the millions of tiny memories that make up a person’s history.

Two people form an unlikely bond over a series of chance encounters. A suitcase full of stories collected over a lifetime, is unpacked to reveal the complexities involved in navigating our own lives, and what happens when we forget to pack the right things.

Expect a feast for the senses that mixes performance, animation, live lyrical music and flm.

154 Collective is an international group of theatre makers, visual artists, animators, musicians and writers who come together to tell new stories in interesting and captivating ways.
