After its stint at the King’s Head Theatre from 24 to 29 April 2018, as part of the inaugural Who Runs the World? season, the world premiere of In the Shadow of the Mountain moves to the Old Red Lion Theatre from 15 May to 2 June 2018, with a press night on 17 May.
Rob stands on the edge of oblivion just as the chaotic Ellie careers into his life. They desperately need each other but is Ellie, who’s struggling with her own Borderline Personality Disorder, really the best person to try and help? Sometimes you can only save one person. And it’s okay if that person is you.
This touching, funny story explores a relationship born in the throes of a mental health crisis as a couple struggles to find their place in the world.
In the Shadow of the Mountain, written by Felicity Huxley-Miners, has been specially selected for the Who Runs the World? season celebrating female playwrights at the King’s Head Theatre, running alongside Sarah Milton’s Tumble Tuck as well as new work by other up-and-coming writers including Laura McGrady and Daisy King. Huxley-Miners’ first full-length Tea and Good Intentions was presented at the King’s Head in 2017, and after success there and at London’s Canal Cafe Theatre, it will soon embark on a national tour.
In the Shadow of the Mountain also stars Huxley-Miners, who plays Ellie opposite David Shears as Rob. The premiere production is directed by Richard Elson and presented by Instinct Theatre and Quantum Frolic Theatre.
