Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Hold On Let Go

Author(s): Luca Rutherford
Company: Unfolding Theatre

Alex is 56. Luca is half his age. Alex has an encyclopaedia in his head. Luca has one on her phone.

Alex can’t recall his mother’s voice or most of the 1980s. But, he can instantly bring to mind his mother’s cooking and his family’s stories of the Spanish Civil War.

Luca worries that she can’t remember the important stuff—things that might make the world a better place. Her journey sucks her into a black hole crammed full of everything she’s ever forgotten.

It’s a show that bakes bread, dances on the kitchen table and wonders what is left when words are gone.

The creative team brings together Paul Smith (Maxïmo Park), Selina Thompson (salt.) and Liv Lorent (BalletLORENT), collaborating for the first time with Unfolding Theatre.
