A chain of events discretely alters a private world to devastating effect when two lives cross at a festival of music and song. Told against a backdrop of the here and now, The Festival is a simple story of love and expectation, of family and companionship, of the mundane and the extraordinary.
The Festival and The Catastrophe Trilogy are currently touring in Europe.
Commissioned by the Barbican BITE 10, London; Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Brussels; The Point, Eastleigh; Uovo Performing Arts Festival, Milan; and the Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster. Supported
by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Also supported by The Royal Exchange, Manchester; the Corn Exchange, Newbury and The Basement, Brighton.
“ The Festival is a triumph ”
