Table

‘Go on then, table, speak. You tell us, you were there, you've always been there.’

Rufus Norris (London Road, Doctor Dee) directs an epic tale of belonging, identity and the things we pass on.

Telling the story of one family over 200 years, Table is a collaborative exploration of belonging, identity and the things we pass on. Six generations, nine performers, thirty parts and one very special piece of furniture.

Suitable for 16yrs+, contains adult language and nudity.
