Event Description

After a sell-out five star run at the Edinburgh Festival Les Enfants Terribles tour the UK with their new award-winning show, The Trench.

From the team behind The Terrible Infants, Ernest and the Pale Moon and The Vaudevillains, comes a new play inspired by the true story of a miner who became entombed in a tunnel during World War One. As the horror threatens to engulf him, he finds that not everything in the darkness is what it seems as he starts to discover a new, strange world beneath the mud and death. Setting off on an epic journey of salvation, the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur as he questions what's real, what's not and whether it even matters?

Blending live music, puppetry and physical performance, The Trench is the critically acclaimed new show "from razor sharp theatre company." Les Enfants Terribles (The Telegraph). The company has performed productions to thousands of people all over the world including theatres in Poland, Czech Republic, Dubai, Norway, Singapore, Australia, and has toured extensively all over the UK winning vast critical acclaim.

Written by Oliver Lansley (BBC2's Whites, ITV2's FM and SKY'S Little Crackers) with music by acclaimed artist Alexander Wolfe. Alexander has performed with many artists including Jamie Cullum and Paul Weller before embarking on a solo career with his debut album Morning Brings a Flood winning huge acclaim from the New York Post to The Sunday Times.
