Theatre Ad Infinitum (UK) present

Suitable for 12+ (PG see note) Running Time: Approximately 1 hour 10minutes (no interval) Following a Sell Out tour at the Barbican, London, the incredible show comes to Lakeside. This exquisite show takes the audience on an amazing journey of life, death, and enduring love and was a multi-award winning, critically acclaimed sell out at Edinburgh Fringe 2011. As well as the poignancy of the subject matter, much of this performance is gently and sometimes blackly funny, delivered brilliantly by the company, using clever live accordion accompaniment. After his wife passes away, William escapes to a paradise of fantasy and past memories, a place far from the reality of his grief. Returning from beyond the grave, Rose revisits her widowed companion to perform one last act of love: to help him let go. "The inventiveness of the storytelling is constantly amazing, the story universal and bittersweet, and the performance immaculate... I really cannot recommend this highly enough" The Stage "Extraordinarily poignant…beautifully performed... packs a real emotional punch. In the end, this is a show about loss and bereavement that is as much about mourning your own lost self as about the grief at the death of a long-term partner" The Guardian www.theatreadinfinitum.co.uk Note: PG – because of the nature of the content, we require parents to accompany children Plus: Post Show Discussion with Members of the Company Free Image credit: Alex Brenner
