Gob Squad presents

War and Peace

Tuesday 7 & Wednesday 8 June 2016 at 8pm

Theatre - £16 (£14 concessions)


“Hold this book. Heavy isn’t it? Actually that’s only half of it. It’s one of the longest in the world. It has 1256 pages (depending on the edition and language you are reading in), originally written in four volumes, there’s more than 135 characters. Have you actually read it?…I’m only half way through.”

Far from the shifting borders of conflict and violence, in a place ravaged by peace, a group of artisans gather to contemplate the grandeur of Leo Tolstoy’s epic novel over a High Society Russia style dinner.

War and Peace puts you in the hands of one of the world’s most notorious theatre collectives – Gob Squad – in a playful performance that breaks all the rules of traditional theatre.

Dances are danced and duels are fought in a modern day attempt to address one of Tolstoy’s concerns: how should one live a moral life in an ethically imperfect world?

“Gob Squad skip fearlessly along the thin line between fiction and reality, film and live action, like reckless tightrope walkers.”
