TAILORED PERFORMANCES: 7.30pm, 30th (Relaxed) & 12noon, 6th (Parent & Baby)

POST-SHOW DISCUSSION: January 30th, Evening. A post-show talk on Cuzco with writer Víctor Sánchez Rodríguez and translator William Gregory, chaired by director Kate O’Connor.

In a bid to save their relationship a Spanish couple travel to Cuzco – conquistador stronghold, Inca city of the puma and tourist paradise. But as the altitude sickness, Pisco sours and layers of history take hold, they realise their journey has only just begun. 

Set along the Inca Trail, this is a sharp, contemporary portrait of a couple who become increasingly lost to one another, haunted by their own desires and the ghosts of their colonial past. 

Kate O’Connor (Frozen Light, Researcher ‘Minefield’, JMK Finalist) directs the UK premiere of one of Spain’s most acclaimed young playwrights. Translated by William Gregory (Royal Court, Gate Theatre), this production emerged from the work of Out of the Wings collective, based at Kings College London. 

With the support of Acción Cultural Española, Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants, and the Cervantes Institute.

 

TAILORED PERFORMANCES

RELAXED: For anyone who benefits from a more relaxed performance environment. House lights are left up with audience free to exit and reenter as required. Sound levels are reduced and any strobe / ‘flashing light’ effects will be omitted also.

PARENT & BABY: Similar to our Relaxed Performance in terms of technical alterations, but provided as an opportunity for new mums and dads to enjoy a spot of theatre without the need to hire a babysitter. Please note, we do not exclude other audience members from booking to see this performance.
