<p><strong>Missing</strong> is a deliciously warped journey into the depths of the human psyche. Follow Lily, a woman whose soul appears to be decaying. She is very successful in life and love but something is missing&#8230;</p> <p>Amit Lahav’s production invites the audience to experience a series of extraordinary images, jaw-dropping choreography and a tantalizing multilingual vocal landscape. The shadows of Lily’s past invite her, along with each audience member, to consider how far they have strayed from who they are and where they come from.</p> <p><strong>Missing</strong> is a truly universal theatrical experience. Since 2012 it has toured to Russia, China, Georgia, Malta, Colombia, Mexico and across the UK.</p> <p><em>“Together they generate a tingling energy.”</em> <br /> ★★★★ The Times (Donald Hutera)</p> <p><em>“A kind of restless delirium, dense with poetic effect.”</em><br /> ★★★★ <strong>The Guardian</strong> (Sanjoy Roy)</p> <p>Some smoke, strobe and haze effects will be used during the performance</p> <h3>Post Show Discussion &#8211; Tuesday 29 January</h3> <p><br /> </p> <h3>Schools</h3> <p>Gecko is currently listed as a prescribed practitioner on the <span class="caps">AQA</span> specification for AS and A-Level Drama &amp; Theatre, and are regularly studied by students across the world undertaking the International Baccalaureate in Theatre.</p> <p>Schools tickets are £12 each (subject to availability). 1 teacher goes free with every 10 tickets purchased.
