  • BORN OF A LIGHTBULB IT SEEMED

    Friday 7 May @ 7pm & 9pm
    Saturday 8 May @ 7pm & 9pm


    A woman lives alone, restless for expression. Staving off loneliness in a world clinging to the remnants of Noah's ark, that we must all travel to our deaths two-by-two, she begins to anthropomorphise objects in her house, until she finds the one. Is it a dissociative breakdown, or is it love?

    Saturday 29 May @ 7pm & 9pm


    Five characters, five reasons to live, an odyssey towards death. A collage of memory, these characters jostle for existence in a theatrical phantasmagoria filled with dark humour, pathos, and unsettling personal narrative.
