LADY EATS APPLE
LADY EATS APPLE
BACK TO BACK THEATRE
We are finite in an infinite world: the punchline of existence is how little of it we’re given. Join us on a journey of mythical proportions with Back to Back Theatre’s new major work, LADY EATS APPLE.
Set inside a vast, awe-inspiring inflatable, LADY EATS APPLE is a story about the inevitability of death, our fragility and the myths and illusions we create to fortify ourselves. Inarguably one of the world’s most important contemporary theatre companies working today, Back to Back Theatre charts new trails deeper into the landscape of the unconscious with their most epic work to date.
Please note: this performance contains adult themes. Headphones are supplied and will need to be worn throughout the performance.
Duration: 75mins no interval

‘WE MIGHT TELL BIG STORIES ABOUT THE START OF THE WORLD BUT, IN THE END WE’VE ALL JUST ENDED UP HERE, LIVING LIFE ONE DAY AT A TIME. AND THE STORIES OF HOW WE TRAVERSE THESE SPACES ARE JUST AS BIG.’ THE GUARDIAN
