CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Inspired by real life events and a newspaper cutting in Chennai and Kolkata Stowaway tells the story of a man from India who finds himself home, yet adrift from everything he knows. Hiding in the wheel arch of a commercial airliner bound for the UK, his frozen body is discovered in a leafy suburb car-park in London, with no one knowing who he is or how he got there. Flying back and forth through time and place, Stowaway presents a physical and compelling piece of theatre that looks at storytelling as a political act. Running time: 80mins.
