A contemporary psychological tragedy written and performed by David Leddy.
Chris has just experienced three deaths, one after another. He’s in prison awaiting trial. But he can’t quite remember why.
Over the course of one tense, riveting hour we witness him piece together his complex descent from passionate love to shame, devastation and the many, many forms of madness. Just beneath the surface of everyday life there’s complete anarchy lying in wait.
Coriolanus Vanishes is a contemporary psychological tragedy written and performed by David Leddy, “theatrical maverick” (Guardian), “iconoclast” (List) and “genius” (Scotsman). The show features an audacious and arresting design from a multi-award-winning production team where richly-coloured, razor-sharp slashes of light cut across a burnt-out, stark stage.
Exploring how shadowy childhood memories can besiege our adult relationships, Coriolanus Vanishes combines the moral ambiguity of the global arms trade with the chaotic challenges of adopting an abused child.
Sometimes your friends are worse than your enemies, and sometimes you’re the worst of all. What happens then?
