A HILARIOUS DINNER YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MISS! IT WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU SEE YOURSELF AND YOUR RELATIONSHIPS!
The Dreadful Hours is a darkly comic, physically charged drama that exposes the quiet disintegration of love’s first flourish through one couple’s relationship. What happens when one hour’s dinner can seem like years, yet years seem to pass in a heartbeat?
Combining Tmesis Theatre’s trademark physicality with new writing from acclaimed Northwest playwright Chris Fittock, this wonderfully inventive production, directed by Peepolykus’ master of the ridiculous, Javier Marzan, will take you on an emotional and humorous journey with striking visuals and an original sound design.
A collaboration with Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse.
(Running time: 70mins)
