Siamese Twins

by Griselda Gambaro
translated by Gwen Mackeith

'I would like to, I would like to...cut the cord.'

'This is a rare chance to see an important play and I can't recommend this production enough. Go and see it.'
★★★★★ Camden Voyeur

'Receiving a worthy tribute, in its long overdue UK premiere, this atmospheric production succeeds in weaving comedy into menace, and vice versa'
The Stage

11-15 September all tickets are £8

In this absurd and forceful play, two brothers carry out a primal scene of envy, cruelty and torture. Ignacio wants to break free of his brother and move out of their shared house, but Lorenzo has other plans.

Through a series of dark comedic scenes the absurd becomes a harrowing metaphor of the most pure and raw reality.

First performed in 1967, this is an early, yet startling brilliant, work by the internationally acclaimed Argentine playwright, Griselda Gambaro. The UK premiere of Siamese Twins is a collaborative project between the Silver Lining Theatre company and Artes Escenicas Rayuela, A.C. and has been generously supported by the Out of the Wings project at King's College London, Queen's University Belfast and Oxford University.

There will be post-show discussion on 20 September. Free admission with a ticket from the performance.

Cast includes: Rob Witcomb, Fred Gray, Jay Worthy, Emile Clarke, Grahame Edwards and Scott Chambers

Creative Team: Jorge Perez Falconi and Mara Lockowandt (directors), Karen Quigley (lighting design), Sylwia Dobkowska (set design), Kostas Panagiotou (composer), James Illman (graphic design).
