Created by Dylan Frankland & Madeleine Allardice

Have we forgotten how to socialise? During the past 18 months we’ve all had to avoid human interaction.

Here at Kill The Cat HQ we’ve been examining the human population and reckon we all need a little help re-adjusting, so, don’t worry we’re here to help: prepare yourself for a once in a lifetime “social” event. TALK is a social-scientific-experimental-game-show-installation-theatre-extravaganza.

Directed by Katie Villa

Ever been love-struck?
We have.
And it hurt.
This is about what happens behind closed doors when you love a little too much.
It is about the slippery line between care and abuse, the colossal strength it takes to break free and the potential danger in doing so.
Us Against The World is an absurd and sometimes funny reminder that the greatest betrayal is forgetting yourself.
