PROBE PRESENTS

Suitable for: 16+ years (see warning) Running time: 60mins (no interval) Post Show Discussion approximately 9.15pm, free - to be confirmed Probe’s daring piece of dance theatre May is written by Tim Crouch (Royal Court, National Theatre), directed by Pete Shenton (New Art Club), and is performed by Probe’s Artistic Director, Antonia Grove, Scott Smith and Ben Duke (Lost Dog’s Place Prize-winning choreographer). May is a young woman on the edge, teetering on the brink, an emotional time bomb with a wild imagination. Douglas is her polar opposite; he fancies himself as a bit of a writer. He wants to help her, but he has problems of his own. Darkly humourous, this is a modern day romance of sorts, told through dance, text and song. But, as the story unfolds, the performers reveal a world of complex human desires in which exterior pain is an escape from the interior of the mind.
