A BENCH AT THE EDGE BY LUIGI JANNUZZI
26th - 30th November, Tristan Bates Theatre
Directed by Kasia Różycki
A thought-provoking dark comedy that addresses mental health issues, suicidal thoughts and the fragility of the human condition.
In the style of Theatre of the Absurd, two strangers meet on a bench at the edge of an abyss and contemplate their chosen paths.
Is there life beyond the void? What is drawing them closer and closer to the edge? Will they take the 'heroic dive'.
Number One: Meg Lake
Number Two: Harriet Main
Bullets: Paweł Jasiński / Daniel Ireland
'A Bench at the Edge' is presented by special arrangements with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD., A Concord Theatricals Company.
