Part of the Spring 2012 Double Bill

Cartwright puts his more familiar social realism on the back burner for this meditation on ageing and mortality, although his customary humour and poetic writing remain very much to the fore.

Seven bed mates put in a hard day's night, flitting between fitful dreams and submerged memories, watched over all the while by a taunting and mischievous bed head. Using music, movement and song, this production follows these travellers on their long journey into night.
