Taking its inspiration from The Tower, by WB Yeats, the play tells the story of an old man who loses his wife to cancer. After she passes away, William escapes to a paradise of fantasy and past memories, a place far from the reality of his grief. Returning from beyond the grave, Rose revisits her widowed companion to perform one last act of love: to help him let go. The unfolding drama is told entirely without words, in their place movement, a gestural language, haunting accordion music and a use of masks that Lecoq-trained Theatre Ad Infinitum have entirely re-thought for this production.
