Synopsis


"Settlers wanted for alternative living community in South America, all welcome to apply, unless you're a prick."


The world premiere production of acclaimed new Welsh theatre company Motherlode in their London debut following a Welsh tour, Exodus is set in South Wales.


On the eve of the last factory in town closing, four neighbours hatch a plan that is literally pie in the sky …


Mary, Ray, Mike and Timmy gather in an allotment, decide to build a plane, and take off down the high street.


Past the butchers, past the curry house and above the Chapel in search of a life free from politics and the grind.


Blisteringly funny, this heart-warming new drama is accompanied by a live original score by David Grubb with choreography from Emma Vickery culminating in a new adventure that makes anything seem possible.
