Wrestling the Walrus
Status: Current Project
A 154 Collective and Royal Exchange Theatre co-production – winner of the 2018 Hodgkiss Award.
WRESTLING THE WALRUS is a new play about companionship, connections and the millions of tiny memories that make up a person’s history.
Two people form an unlikely bond over a series of chance encounters. A suitcase full of stories collected over a lifetime, is unpacked to reveal the complexities involved in navigating our own lives, and what happens when we forget to pack the right things.
Expect a feast for the senses that mixes performance, animation, live lyrical music and film.
