Come Away with Me to the End of the World / invites you to listen in on a conversation between three people as they shape and reshape their physical and emotional selves.
This self-imposed quest takes them through shifting landscapes and climates, snow-topped mountain peaks and erupting volcanoes.
Structured as a series of intimate conversations, ranging from the prosaic to the beautiful, this production reaffirms Ranters Theatre as the masters of voyeuristic theatre. As we eavesdrop on these three figures, moments of eccentric dance and song erupt, and the disparity between their actual lives and their dreamed selves resonates intensely.
Designed by visual artist Callum Morton, this surreal journey demands that you get up, tiptoe to the edge of your own world / and peer over the edge.
"LIGHT AS AIR ON THE SURFACE, WITH PHILOSOPHICAL DEPTHS THAT WILL NIGGLE YOU LONG AFTER YOU LEAVE"
