a new play by Tanya Ronder
Now playing until 18 May
‘Go on then, table, speak. You tell us, you were there, you've always been there.’
Rufus Norris (London Road, Doctor Dee) directs an epic tale of belonging, identity and the things we pass on.
Telling the story of 115 years of family life, Table is a multi-generational story of love, ghosts and how to live. Six generations, nine performers, thirty parts and one special piece of furniture.
