The Wedding at Liverpool Playhouse

THE Playhouse continues its wonderfully diverse season with The Wedding next week. Running from 21 to 24 Feb this show promises to be a visual feast of physical theatre.

We are all married, bound by a contract.  But what are the terms of this relationship and can we talk about divorce?

Gecko’s latest creation is inspired by the complexities of human nature; the struggle between love and anger, creation and destruction, community and isolation. In a blur of wedding dresses and contractual obligations, their extraordinary ensemble of international performers guides audiences through a dystopian world in which we are all brides, wedded to society.

Combining movement, imagery and provocative narratives into Gecko’s trademark style, The Wedding brings these contracts into question with an emotionally charged and spectacular performance.

We want to believe in our journey but where are we heading? Is it too late to stop, to go back, to fall in love, to start again?

This production has been described as ‘jaw-dropping’ and we all know that the Playhouse don’t put on duds – this has to be worth a look.
