Genre(s): New Writing

About: The Backward Fall

The Backward Fall is an awkwardly funny story of Etta and her family. She suffers from the early stages of Alzheimer’s, yet as her condition worsens, it is her family who descend into absurdity. Literally. The play is a hyper-realistic representation of a Sunday afternoon to which you are invited.
This piece is based on interviews and stories from Alzheimer's sufferers and their families. We will be donating money from every ticket to charity and welcome any further donations.

We are in the process of setting up and establishing ourselves as a theatre company who primarily focus on new writing and inventive adaptations. We play with the idea of hyper-reality, mixing naturalism and surrealism to subvert the norm and mundane of everyday life.

We have been inspired thus far by Carran Waterfield, Complicite, COSmino Theatre, Dario Fo, Eugenio Barba, Shunt, Steven Berkoff and Tmesis among others.
