Get Out of My Letter Box tells the funny and heartbreaking story of an estranged daughter and an isolated Mother in search of connection, identity, and love.
Thirty years on from an early adoption, eccentric inventor and ex-circus clown Alexia moves next door to eco-warrior, Hope, who she believes to be her biological Mother. Walls tell secrets, letter boxes deliver memories, and an otherworldly invention meddles with the rules of engagement, in this explosive tale of human connection.
Fusing physical theatre, clown and elements of the absurd, Get Out of My Letter Box journeys through the shifting minds and hearts of an unlikely pair as their worlds are turned upside down.
Written and performed by Katie Burson and Beth Kayes, Get Out of My Letter Box was supported through an eleven month arts residency awarded to Katie Burson in 2019 at Studio One Toi Tū, Auckland.
Produced by Co Theatre Physical, Get Out of My Letter Box features sound design by Emi Pogoni, set design by Ruby Read, costume design by Elizabeth Whiting, lighting design by Paul Bennett and direction by Ruth Dudding.
