FROM THE CRADLE TO THE BIN

This show is a hilarious odyssey about being thrown onto life’s scrap heap. It uses the magical shadowy world of the Bouffon, the lightness of musical theatre and the company’s unique playfulness to raise questions around the issues of neglect and care and how we can often be complicit in what happens behind closed doors.
The show creates a dark, disturbing and hilarious world. Through live music, shocking imagery and a host of anarchic characters we reveal an unsettling commentary on the reality of care and neglect within in our society.
From the Cradle to the Bin deals with universal themes of neglect and care and in the current climate these issues are pressing issues and we feel the show has a longevity and could travel.
