Absolute Theatre/Teatro do Montemuro
The 4 Clowns of the Apocalypse

The end of the world is nigh! Well, maybe. The Horsemen of The Apocalypse assemble to fulfil their prophesied function and with epic scale incompetence they grapple with universal destruction and deckchairs. Comical, magical and visually stunning, ‘The 4 Clowns of the Apocalypse’ is a sensorial, nonsensical delight for the whole family. Teatro do Montemuro from Portugal and the UK-based Absolute Theatre, both with great experience of making innovative theatre, come together to present this highly entertaining, ante-apocalyptic production.

Age Range: Families and 6+

Reckless Sleepers
The Last Supper

The Last Supper is a performance piece where we invite our audience to eat and drink with us while we speak and then eat the last words of the famous, the infamous, the not so famous, criminals, victims, heroes, heroines and stars. With real scenarios, invented scenarios, future scenarios and scenarios from the past. The Last Supper is part performances, part meal, made up of half-remembered words and the forgotten last requests of inmates on death row. Each audience member is given a table number, their case number, their incident number. Thirteen of these are last suppers.

Age Range: 16+
