Swann & Co. Present: The Sad, Miserable Tale Of Albert Belacqua And His Family Of Doomed Neurotics

A production by Theatre Group

Written by Alexis Forss

This is Theatre of Cruelty Robert Swann - actor, director, writer - and his troupe Swann & Company perform their newest play, a piece in the vein of Ibsen and Chekhov, performed in the style of Artaud's 'Theatre of Cruelty': a long day's journey into the dark night of the Belacqua family

However what the audience see is subverted by the rampant incompetence, amateurishness, and antagonism rife in the company.

Comic antics, terrifying tales, deteriorating thespians: a true theatrical exposé, not to be missed. It'll be all right on the night - or not!
