Description

In many ways a harrowing and honest reflection on the company's year of disaster. The show deals with the members own experience of life, love and loss in a year where their grief ranged from the loss of a loved one to a cancerous cat.

Won Total Theatre Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe 99.

The company's second UK touring piece, Reunion, gained the support of North West Arts Board, Lancashire County Council and Lancaster City Council.

“Despite the fact that it‚s based on acute misery the production‚s strangely humorous and upbeat. Powerful and innovative: visually engaging.”
The List

“Many cutting, smart visual ideas that keep you watching and wondering where the show is going: visionary theatre.”
The Stage

“The visual flair of Forced Entertainment combined with Frantic Assembly's love of anything young, hip and happening.”
Total Theatre

“Loss and uncertainty, dead dreams and death itself, all creep into the hectic jollity, because that's how life is - and METRO BOULOT DODO have the wit to see it and the talent to reflect it.”
