Lady Eats Apple

Lady Eats Apple

Adam and Eve join an insecure God in a dark paradise, as He creates the world hoping for a little worship. But when temptation takes over, man and woman are expelled into a timeless landscape before this story of immense vulnerability, of tenderness and redemption, resumes in more familiar terrain.

One of the most exciting and urgent companies in contemporary theatre today, Australia’s Back to Back is driven by an ensemble of actors with intellectual disabilities who are co-authors and performers of the work. Lady Eats Apple is a large-scale, experiential production that exposes us to the fragility of existence while challenging the assumptions we hold about others and ourselves.

“It’s rare to spend time with the fragility of our own existence, and even rarer to spend time in the space in between living and dying, described so beautifully in the show as a place of ‘pure love’.”

“We see the epic narrative arcs that can be built from the smallest, intimate interactions” The Guardian ★★★★
