Part of the 'Right to Roam' Festival
The first thing I said to my partner Lillian in my sleep was “I want to get in a wardrobe and take you to Elephant and Castle.”
Do you tell the truth when you talk in your sleep? Does your sleep talk even make sense? And could it just be that you analyse your relationships in a way that’s more honest than you do when
you’re awake? That’s the dangerous premise behind ‘Elephant and Castle,’ a new, experimental show that springs from three years of recorded sleep talk.
From there, it becomes tender, funny, uncomfortable and dark too, as the mutterings never quite take the form of honest coherence. But does the incoherence conceal the truth? Is there something
struggling to be said? Something perhaps that is painful and potentially disastrous for this relationship? Using live music and extracts from those recordings, Elephant and Castle is a Gig Theatre show about how honest it’s possible to be and have your relationship survive.
