The Adding

Journey Into The Underworld

Wed 23 Sep to Thu 24 Sep

The Adding

Written by Ciarán Myers
Directed by Catherine Fowles

Drawing inspiration from Elmer Rice's expressionist classic The Adding Machine, Backstage Forward presents The Adding by award-winning young playwright Ciarán Myers.

This dark comedy plays with sex, death, cuddles, puppetry, and finance for our modern recession-era generation as we follow a couple through the greatest sins of their lives.

Join Backstage Forward and journey Into the Underworld as we explore the process of theatre making through our hands-on workshops, which will focus on specific elements of the set, lighting, and puppetry.

Workshops will begin at 4:45 PM and 8:45 PM on 24th September and last 45 minutes. You can attend the workshops without purchasing tickets to the show, and all materials needed for the workshops will be provided. For ages 14 and up.

To make a free reservation for the workshop, please email the Box Office at mailatthecockpit [dot] org [dot] uk
