Ruby and Cedar

8pm, Neville Studio
£10 (£8 concs)
It’s time for the annual visit home but this year something’s changed for Ruby and Cedar. This time there are bigger issues to face. As they play out their age-old confrontations, love and sisterhood are eclipsed by sibling rivalry and old hurts. Against the beauty and cold silence of space they find down-to-earth warmth, but must begin to come to terms with loss.

Killing yourself? Fundraising your own funeral? Harder than it looks, mate.
