The European premiere of an absurd comedy from the team behind the international hit The Bee.
Renowned Japanese writer, performer and Artistic Director of the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre Hideki Noda paints a portrait of a disconnected family on a self-destructive course in this satirical comedy about consumerism and technology in a 'selfie' society.
Starring Hideki himself, Olivier Award-winning actor and director Kathryn Hunter and Glyn Pritchard in an English translation adapted by Will Sharpe.
With music and soundscape influenced by traditional Japanese Noh and Kabuki performed live by legendary Japanese Kabuki musician Denzaemon Tanaka XIII.
Boo, Bo and Pickle have all made plans tonight.
But someone has to stay home and look after Princess.
People are waiting, start times are looming.
No one's budging and petty bickering soon spirals into a ludicrous battle of wills and, possibly, the end of the world.
