Bye bye world: a play at Battersea Art Centre


 A reconstruction of upheaval in the perfectly normal lives of two women.



Bye bye world
Gehring & Ketelaars | Frijling
Battersea Arts Centre
24 & 25 May | 8pm

A woman takes a bite of birthday cake left over from her party. She looks around the house. Never again, she thinks. Never again. She sticks her fork in the cake and grabs her coat.

It is possible. You could just disappear. Close the door behind you, never return. Escape. Reinvent yourself. Start anew.

“Bye Bye World is spectacularly well done – never has a show about boredom been so riveting.”
Fringe Guru

“A beautifully crafted tale of the desire to reject one’s accumulated existence”
Arts Hub Australia

Winner of the Amsterdam Fringe Festival Award 2011

Nominated Fringe World Perth and Prague Fringe Theatre Awards

Price: £12, £8 concs
