‘A triumph, theatrical magic’ **** The Times
A celebration of the human spirit’s ability to survive even the most testing of times, The Catastrophe Trilogy is a collection of theatre works that share a common playful interest in the act of storytelling and are at once touching, comic and resolutely hopeful. The Catastrophe Trilogy premiered at the Barbican, London (2010) before a European premier at KunstenFESTIVALdesArts, Brussels (2010)
The Catastrophe Trilogy comprises three Lone Twin Theatre productions:
Alice Bell (2006)
