Amidst the debris of a condemned house, two desperate strangers realise they have been abandoned by their friends. Fearful of what lies ahead, the two argue before starting to make a home from the surrounding junk. But as the bulldozers move in, a choice lies ahead - accept their fate or cling on to hope. Written by award-winning Chilean playwright Juan Radrigan, Mad Man Sad Woman gives voice to the voiceless; finding beauty, laughter, and dignity in the lives amongst the rubble. In a powerful new translation by Catherine Boyle, this timely UK premiere demands attention for those forced to live on the margins of our society. Head for Heights is a theatre company known for its innovative approaches to translation. Their bold new production is directed by Sue Dunderdale.
