Parlour Games

16:00, 15 - 28 Aug

1945. An unknown man returns to his childhood home. 1927. Four children play a delightfully dark, frightfully funny game. Edward, Constance, Oliver and Theo revel in gothic fantasy – a joyfully cruel world of castles, dungeons and (willingly) kidnapped heroines. But the violence of a real and half-forgotten war lurks beyond the torchlight... Will surrounding shadows unleash the darkness within? Born of gothic novels and silent films, Parlour Games blends acrobatics, shadow-play and beautifully inventive visuals. Funny, playful and haunting theatre from award-winning Tooth+Nail. 'Wonderful... A joyous ditty with a twinge of loss' ****½ (Australia Times).
