    Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s Directors’ Cuts 2019: Lot Vekemans’ powerful show about manipulation, a grapple of the past, and a fight for domination

    We’re…
    A man and a woman
    Who’ve lost a child
    Who first lost a child
    And then…each other

    A couple torn apart by their son’s death meet at his graveyard. The cemetery is closing; the body must be moved.

    Unearthing wounds once silenced, their meeting becomes an exercise in manipulation, a grapple of the past, and a fight for domination.

    By Lot Vekemans
    English translation by Rina Vergano

    Directed by Sara Aniqah Malik
    Designed by Oscar Selfridge
    By arrangement with Nick Hern Books
