About The Collywobbles
Bunny and Vi – the 2 surviving members of a former song-and-dance act – are compelled to confront past guilt and imminent death when a young man arrives at their remote and precarious home.
Who is the young man? A BBC talent scout or the chap from the Co-Op funeral service? Why has he come now? What really happened that day in 1940 at the Palmer’s Green Hippodrome? And what about those ruddy geese?
A black comedy, time-shifting from 1990 back to 1940, Brendan Murray’s play The Collywobbles explores how past assumptions can taint the present, while present revelations can make us rethink the past.
Written in response to the HIV/AIDS crisis, and first performed in 1993, the play is still poignantly relevant today, and has timely resonances of the present pandemic.
We are particularly excited that Brendan Murray himself will direct the evening. Hooray!
