About: Lone Twin Theatre - The Catastrophe Trilogy

A celebration of the human spirit’s ability to survive even the most testing of times, The Catastrophe Trilogy is a collection of works that share a common playful interest in the act of storytelling and are at once touching, comic and resolutely hopeful.

Alice Bell
A fictional character born into a fictional conflict, Alice seeks happiness in a divided land, finding love and companionship but at a terrible cost. Part DIY musical, part fairy-tale, Alice Bell offers a portrait of life as an act of hope.

Daniel Hit by a Train
This story is inspired by Postman's Park, a Victorian memorial in the heart of the City of London commemorating true tales of lives lost through heroic acts. Each tragedy in turn is told, in all its comedic, vaudevillian glory as a testimony to our instinct to help each other.

The Festival
A love story told against a backdrop of here and now. As two lives cross at a festival of music and song, a silent world begins to sing.

The Catastrophe Trilogy
All three shows back to back on Saturdays.
