From a nihilistic opening fusion of pleasure and pain, Croft embarks on a wordless assault on patriarchy and performative norms in order to break on through to the other side where a collective display of elation awaits. “With its endless dreary words..all that pointless moving about...” He goes further. “I just wish they'd stand still sometimes and let the audience look at the scenery.” It's not difficult to see why Kneehigh Theatre's former artistic director Emma Rice fell for Jamieson's 1992 play, which sees Marc and Bella living through the Russian revolution and the dawn of Nazism, finding their own artistic and personal liberation en route.
