Ad Infinitum's If You Fall opens at Bristol Old Vic in April.

Based on extensive interviews and using an intergenerational ensemble and a capella singing, it explores real-life stories of older people’s care in all its complexities in the company’s signature style of physical theatre.

Margaret is a pillar of her local community. Norson is a brilliant cook. He loves cricket and fishing. She loves singing and her lavender plants. They’re both surrounded by loving families. Their lives are full… So what happens when you lose your independence, your voice, your mind—the essence of what makes you, you?

BSL-integrated and captioned performances available at Bristol Old Vic, The North Wall, HOME Manchester and Northern Stage.
