With the momentum of The Return and Thom Pain, Stooged Theatre presents its third award-winning play of 2012.
Last year, Stooged Artistic Director Carl Young shocked and thrilled Newcastle audiences with his popular and confronting production of The Footage – now he returns to the director’s seat, guaranteeing another intriguing and original experience.
It could happen to anyone. You could be cleaning a hotel room, running a storage unit facility, or simply be taking the dog for a walk. Breathing Corpses is about people who discover dead bodies and the resulting effects it can have on their lives and the people around them.
Three unrelated stories slowly start to fit together in this contemporary mystery. At times darkly funny, at others incredibly tense, this is a production on the Newcastle Theatre calendar not to be missed.
“Laura Wade’s play is like a crossword puzzle where all the clues have to do with death. This is a tight, tense play: you can’t miss a single word, a single gesture…Wade uses the play’s shifting structure to make you feel disorientated, almost scared…The tension, the emotions and the sense of absurdity and fear are brilliantly handled ... A terrifying tour de force”
- The Sunday Times (London)
PLEASE NOTE: this production contains course language, adult themes and violence – Stooged Theatre recommends it for audiences 15 and over.
