Philip Ridley himself recommended that Lidless Theatre mount the tenth-anniversary revival of his instant classic Tender Napalm. The result, according to the critics, is “first-rate” and “an absolute must-see”. Check out our round-up of review highlights. Time to get booking!
The production, helmed by Lidless artistic director Max Harrison, runs at London’s King’s Head Theatre until 20 November 2021 only, with a post-show Q&A chaired by MyTheatreMates founder Terri Paddock on Tuesday 9 November.
Two lovers. A desert Island. Sea serpents. UFOs. Tsunamis. Unicorns. Atomic bombs. What is this thing…called love? This brutal yet tender two-hander explores the highs and lows of a romantic relationship through a series of vignettes ranging from the fantastical to the very basest of human emotions – raw and visceral, dangerously honest.
Jaz Hutchins and Adeline Waby are Man and Woman, with movement direction by Sam Angell, set and costume design by Kit Hinchliffe, lighting design by Holly Ellis and sound by Camille Marchadour. Zoe Weldon produces.
Tender Napalm runs from 26 October to 20 November 2021 at the King’s Head Theatre, 115 Upper Street, London N1 1QN, with performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7pm, matinees Saturdays at 3pm. Tickets priced £10-26.50. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
