Waiting for life. Waiting for sex. Waiting for death, love, punishment.
Everybody is waiting for something. But who is waiting for salvation? This
is a bold, hugely ambitious piece of drama, delivered in brute,
matter-of-fact language. Cambridge´s finest present a spectacle of physical
theatre and cartoon comedy.
Five shocking visions. Seven deadly sins. Ten broken commandments. These
are five very different tragicomic meditations from acclaimed and
controversal playwright Torben Betts hailed as the next Howard Barker.
Brave new cartoon comedy.
