Screaming Secrets | Tristan Bates Theatre | 31 Jan-24 Feb
“What do we do when we’re faced with our own mortality? How do we tell our family and friends and what should we do with the time that’s left? These are the questions that face philosopher and free thinker Antonio as he discovers, by accident, at his own birthday party, that he’s not as healthy as he thinks.” A production of Alexander Matthews’ 2001 play exploring the human need to be understood and appreciated.
