Lent Week 2
Twins Presley and Haley Stray live alone in a dilapidated flat in East London, passing the time by telling each other twisted stories and eating chocolate. Into this world comes the menacingly beautiful night-club performer Cosmo Disney, and his nightmarish associate, Pitchfork Cavalier. This unexpected visit and its terrifying consequences will change the Strays forever.
This piece of magic-realist drama was award-winning playwright Philip Ridley's début play and was received both with great praise and great controversy. His masterful descriptive power capture both the childish beauty and the surreal horror of the Stray's world, inviting the audience into a unique dramatic universe, that is truly Ridley's own.
