THE TRENCH

Theatre |
7th November 2014

From the award-winning team behind The Terrible Infants, Ernest and the Pale Moon and The Vaudevillains, comes a new play inspired by the true story of a miner who became entombed in a tunnel during World War One.  As the horror threatens to engulf him, he finds that not everything in the darkness is what it seems as he starts to discover a new, strange world beneath the mud and death.  Setting off on an epic journey of salvation, the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur as he questions what’s real, what’s not and whether it even matters?  Blending live music, puppetry and physical performance, The Trench is the eagerly anticipated new show from Les Enfants Terribles.  The Trench blends Les Enfants Terribles acclaimed brand of physical storytelling, verse, puppetry and live music from acclaimed artist Alexander Wolfe.  Written by Oliver Lansley (BBC2’s Whites, ITV2’s FM and SKY’S Little Crackers.)

“A total theatre experience of engrossing intensity, The Trench employs acting, mime, music, puppetry, film and even flying to enrich history with the quality of myth and reinvest an old story with the power it has lost through overfamiliarity.” Must See Show The Stage

“A pitch perfect demonstration of atmospheric theatre.  LET’s experience in creating sinister worlds works perfectly with the subject matter to create a devastatingly emotive glimpse into hell on earth” The List

“the overall vision stays with you like a strange, significant dream.” Times

“Total triumph… This production uses theatre to its full potential. It's impossible to imagine any other art form achieving the same.” Edinburgh Evening News
