About: The Gambler

Funded by national lottery by Arts Council England and Haringey Council

Enthralling visual tale combining movement, live music and new writing. The Gambler is the story of Edgar, an old man trapped in his past. As he confronts his addiction, he wonders if his decisions were truly his own. Each spin of the wheel recalls the promise of a life he could have had. He gambles to remember, he gambles to forget.

Founded in 2008, Theatre Re creates and produces visual work on the cutting edge of mime and theatre. The company has toured work in Edinburgh, London, Dublin, Avignon, Paris, and Lyon.

Special post show talk on May 29th at The Cockpit with Dr. Henrietta Bowden Jones of the NHS Foundation trust, specialized in gambling addiction.
