Author(s): Bjørg Vik, translated by Janet Garton
Company: Anarchy Division in association with Neil McPherson for the Finborough Theatre
Edith and Oscar Tellmann have been together since before they can remember.
When their family life took a devastating turn, the couple found solace in travel and adventure. But now they’re well into their 80s, stuck in a drab, damp flat, surrounded by cats, books, memories, and leaking pipes.
As they journey into old age, the couple invent new ways to travel together…
The Journey to Venice is a celebration of ageing, fantasy, love and the sacrifices we make to keep on living.
