The Rebel Alliance invites you into 95-year-old Inga’s living room in Denmark as she reaches out through space and time to her grandson in New Zealand. Inga has seen world wars, cold wars, civil wars. In real life and on TV. And when you’re close to 100 you know a thing or two about a thing or two.
Featuring lots of chalk and a cameo by a Viking God, Back to Square One? is the remarkable story of unremarkable lives and the (sometimes) misdirected urgency that drives us all.
Sometimes all you need is an old lady to set you straight.
Back to Square One? premiered at this year’s Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival and was originally designed to be performed in driveways and open spaces in the aftermath of the 2020 lockdowns. It’s theatre, but only just!
Coffee & cake included.
