A co-production with Improbable

4 - 18 March 2017
Running Time: about 1 hour

Lost Without Words

'If we don't get lost, how can we find a new route?'

Pioneering improvisers and theatre makers Improbable bring you their latest show, Lost Without Words – a theatrical experiment.


Imagine older actors in their 70s and 80s, actors who have spent their lives being other people, bringing life to other people's words. Imagine they were on stage with nothing but themselves and no words but their own. No script, no map, a different show every night, all they have is a lifetime of theatre to help them find their way.
