We Were Kings (in motion)

By | Published on Thursday 7 August 2014

A three-hander about two guys and a girl who are linked by love, friendship and tragic secrets. Beautiful and perfectly stylised physical theatre combined with sharp, touching writing makes for an incredibly moving show. The three performers work in exact unison with one another, using the stage space in imaginative and engaging ways. This sad and compelling story of three people who have lost themselves somewhere along the way to their twenties is moving, heart-breaking and very accessible. The audience find themselves drawn into a world where losing at darts can mean as much as shooting someone. A truly poignant performance that provokes thought and awakens emotion.

theSpace on the Mile, until 23 Aug.
