KING'S HEAD THEATRE
“Maybe you're the last person I'll ever fuck.”
“Yes. If you die tomorrow.”
An intimate two-hander. Follow the journey of Leonie and Bay as they relive their intense and erratic relationship over the course of one night. By turns understated and visceral, Attic examines the violent, all-consuming and seemingly illogical turmoil of contrasting emotions felt after a relationship has ended between two people who never quite find their way back together.
Meriel Hinsching's debut play was originally developed at East 15 Acting School's Debut Festival, and was presented at the King's Head Theatre, Islington in collaboration with RedDeer Theatre Company.
