Inches Apart

Winner of the Old Vic New Voices Theatre503 Award, engineered by Ideas Tap.
From an original concept by Nick Blood and Tom McCall

High rise living,
Paper thin walls,
Separate souls in a city of strangers -
Inches apart.

The Guardian "A fragile sparky work, beautifully designed and lit. It offers a crack of optimism with little sentimentality"

The Stage "Moments of breathtaking physicality...and excellent performances from the cast, the result is highly evocative"

Fringe Report "A visceral, dynamic piece of work..a company to watch. Go and See it!"

Whispering Happiness
By Kenneth Emson

"Come closer. Some things should only be whispered..."

Two teenagers sit in a desolate playground as the city tears itself apart. An old tramp waits in an empty church, while the gangs stalk the streets for their next fix. Into this wasteland of crumbling tower blocks, a shadowy figure appears, promising happiness.
But at what price?
A political play of personal journeys, Whispering Happiness is a lyrical and provocative urban fairytale that explores the choices we face when society is in freefall.

A world premiere presented by Box of Tricks

Box Office: 020 7503 1646
